Really, really windy day. There was a tornado watch until 3, which I didn't think much about until I was up on a ridge overlooping Slagle Hollow at 3:30, in one of the strongest winds I've experienced, blowing small branches past me. And lost. That could have not turned out well, but I made the right guesses at the turns, and it gave me the incentive to power-hike for an hour to get down off the hill and back to Roosterfront.

Before that I found a beautiful long hollow full of mossy deadfalls and trilliums, atonishingly close to the well-traveled trails.
