We're sure you guys have noticed by now that we're early risers, and we tend to seek sunrises as opposed to sunsets. Well this time around, we decided to try something different and experience a sunset at the summit. We had the entire summit and view to ourselves!! . . The hike down was long in the dark, we were literally the only two humans around and Anthony was terrified 😂 I however, find it very peaceful to hike in the dark. . . . If you had to pick, would you prefer to HIKE UP in the DARK for SUNRISE or HIKE DOWN in the DARK after SUNSET ?! . .
