The view if i would keep hiking towards Granite Park Chalet. However, this is the turnaround point – after lunch.

 

A six to eight-mile round-trip hike for lunch sounded good from the comfort of home back at Disney World.

Gambled on cut-off jean shorts, dri-fit short-sleeve t-shirt, then a long-sleeve t-shirt next, plus a Glacier Long-sleeve shirt (3 total shirts), then down vest, bandana around neck, wool hat and gloves.

Disney-style peanut-butter and jelly sandwich, mint Oreo cookies, and (only) two bottles of water.
