I found some amazing lenticular clouds
Utter Destruction at the Summit
Unfortunately, the top was covered in fog! I couldn't see anything!!!! My 4:45am wake up wasn't seeming so cool anymore. The last few hundred meters of the hike were utter destruction. Trees were downed everywhere and over the trail. At the top it was like the mountain got a haircut. It seemed like every tree that could be seen was shaved down to about 8 feet. The guard rails, part of the platform trail, and the hut at the top were all destroyed.
On the bright side, I had an incredible solitary hike up the normally crowded mountain where I didn't see a soul the entire way up and only a couple of friendly groups on the way down. On the way down however, it was just my luck that after about 30 minutes, the skies cleared just enough to see the top. I was way to exhausted to turn around, and it's a good thing I didn't because the clouds came back right away. Another typhoon, Tembin came the next day, maybe filled the crater even more, but I couldn't make it to the mountain on the weekend. There's another typhoon coming this weekend though!!!
