Here is Holly's Moat report:
We finally did the Moat hike and what a beautiful, clear, sunny day it was. We began the hike with a group of 13 hikers. This ridge bound hike allowed continuous panoramic views most of way to the summit. Some described the view as "mystic" like a "watercolor painting" with various hues of blue mountain silhouettes in every direction. A few folks lounged and sunbathed at the summit of south moat while other trek-ed a big .06 miles to middle moat summit. The hike was 2.9 miles to the middle summit at 2800' lasting approx. 5 hours total. We finished the day with a healthy snack at Dam ice cream.
