22 miles is a long way to hike, but with good friends and good times, it's a piece of cake. :). We summited Sheridan in a day and enjoyed our time at the top before storms started moving in closer on us. Even though it's a little nerve racking to watch a lightening storm as you descend a mountain, we got to witness a small forest fire, which was really awesome! Lightening struck a couple miles away from us and we saw the smoke begin to rise. Then the orange flames rose above the trees! The fire was probably subdued by the rain that was quick to follow, and we saw a helicopter on its way towards the fire. It was a great hike, but I was definitely pretty exhausted afterwards.
