Ascent Trip Report

State Park to climb Mount Mansfield. After calling for rain all week, the weather was nice, the sky was clear, but it was very windy. We took a short side trip on the way up to see cantilevered rock, not a misnomer. Summited quickly after a stop above the treeline for a snack, and drove back to Stowe for dinner at Crop. We stopped along the way to buy honey from the man in Smugglers Notch. Met with Timothy the next day in Burlington for lunch. Bought new boots at the Gear Exchange, Salewas.
