At one point the trail disappears onto an exposed stretch of granite. I continue to walk for few minutes across the rock and come to the other side. The giant slab ends at a steep drop-off.

Somehow, I got it into my head that it would be a good idea to hike the Flattop Mountain Trail today. The forecast was superb, mild temperatures, gentle winds, and plenty of sunshine.
