While going up Bear Canyon Trail, I reached the notch where I couldn’t make it last time when it heavily rained. So, I was quite determined to reach it this time. Although mostly shrouded in the clouds, it was still quite windy. I hid in the opposite side of the notch where there was not much of wind blowing. But whenever I climbed back up to take photos, a series of gusts of wind whipped my face with bitter cold slaps. The thick layer of clouds shortly vanished down into the ravines. While the sun shone on this narrow uninhabitable pass for a few seconds, the sky having been hidden behind the clouds showed its hue.
