Ascent Trip Report

This was awesome. Hiked from Underhill State Park via Eagles Cut. Yet another surprise of a closed gate adding a mile or whatever to my hike, good times. Met a nice couple on way up that recently moved to burlington from central ny, they didnt go up to the summit because it was a little taxing on their dog, poor thing. I wish i knew the trail as they went past the hardest part and their dog would have been fine. On the summit there was a snooty couple sitting enjoying the views in their matching black marmot body suits. A group of 10 or so came up. This really pissed them off big time. After a few sighs the couple got up and were annoyed and said "they must be participating in a talking contest" and walked away. LOL!!!!! I thought this was so funny. I opened my ironman 3 lunch bag and housed down a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and headed back down this awesome mountain. Met a summit seward coming up on the way down that told a disgusting story of moving a dead moose off the trail where i was standing. Got lost in burlington, alot of hipsters there i almost mowed down.
