This is the view from Panther Gap. When I arrived here, I knew that there was supposed to be a great view, but the low-lying clouds were too thick to see much of anything. And because it was starting to rain a bit, I focused on the task of getting the shelter set up. While I was sitting inside the shelter arranging gear, I looked up and noticed that within just a few minutes the clouds had rolled back enough to display an awesome view. So I clamored for my camera!! The scene continued to change dramatically in a very short span as the clouds moved like liquid through the valleys below. And then, again within just minutes, I was enshrouded in the moist clouds and retreated to the shelter. You could feel the moisture in the air, and everything inside the shelter felt damp almost immediately. Within a couple hours after falling to sleep, I had to get up to pee. To my delight, the sky was filled with bright stars, and a light breeze had dried most everything that was previously damp from being immersed in the clouds. The following morning as the sun was rising, I was up and beginning the 14 miles to Hamilton Lakes.
