  • Thanks Mo for organizing this spectacular hike! It was wonderful seeing Dianas Baths and the 360 degree view from North Moat summit. But how did you coordinate with Mother Nature to pelt us with hail and a strong west wind just as we began descending the open rock face of the Red Ridge Trail? None of us panicked. Indeed, we flattered ourselves on being “manly men” as we enjoyed a nice lunch after the short shower had passed. - phoenix
