... time I had my jolly rancher which helped me get my mind off hiking. What bothered me a lot were the mosquitoes, and lucky for us we passed a Ranger that had some bug spray. At one point, all of the sudden it started to rain so we got out the rain ponchos, but when we got them on the rain completely stopped!
