Both roads are open. Lost my 17yo son up on Cherohala during a thunderstorm. It was raining hard and he was the middle rider of 3. When I got to the other side in the sun the last rider said he hadn't seen him. Had to call home to the wife to see if he had left a message at the homestead and tell my wife we had lost her little boy. He was having visibility problems and parked and made a lean-to to get out of the rain. He showed up about 5 hrs later just as I was going back out on a search.
I can't imagine what you were going thru for those 5 hours. It would have been too much stress for me. I bet you didn't know whether to hug him or pop him up side his head. LOL!
