7. It didn't take long though and I was completely enveloped in clouds. Hmmm... What to do. I continue on for a short while. Then the trail ends as I reach an area with lots of jagged rock that has to be crossed. And the rock is getting slick. Time to turn around. Mount Ida will wait for me to come another day. On the way down, I meet two other solo hikers willing to give it a try.
