Ascent Trip Report

After hiking Stratton Mountain, I had to get the north summit since I was going that way anyway. When the Fire Tower Trail dumped me out on the very flat summit area, I found a rock just inside thr trees across the ski trail which appeared to be the highest. The gondola summit building and bear statue were lower. For the hike down I just followed the gondola down the Standard Trail. I avoided the gravel event route and was able to follow a decent packed hiking line down through the sometimes tall flowers and grasses. The only issue was when I tried to jump a muddy section and put one foot ankle deep in the mud. I was beginning to feel the cold coming on that I knew I picked up from Katrina yesterday.
