Had a scary moose encounter before sunrise that made us have to turnaround and walk back to the car, luckily we had just started. Once we waited about 10min we restarted and no further encounters. Hike was ok, going up the North Slide and down the South Slide was a good call. Both suck in their own unique way and we were thankful to have dry conditions. I would not want to do either after or during any rain. It is just frustrating because a lot of it is loose gravel and shocking to see some of these huge rocks be equally unreliable. Not the worse hike but glad to have crossed them off.
