Ascent Trip Report

We tried to do this as a sunrise hike, but the prior week of rain caused the steam crossing the swell quite a bit. We had trouble with the first as we tried to cross without getting wet, gave up on the others and just waded through. All this time really set us behind schedule and we couldn't summit before sunrise. We stopped at a nice viewpoint for breakfast and sunrise.

Headed back down after breakfast as we needed to be back in Boston early afternoon. We stopped at Flapjacks in Lincoln for second breakfast.
