Ascent Trip Report

Hiked alone. CONNECTICUT IS DONE BABY! Did it the "old fashioned way". Tried the snow mobile trails back in 2017 and even with my GPS got lost as hell (I never get lost, seriously!). Having the failure before, I read every trip report and opted for Sears road. Owner of the house is amazingly friendly and talked to me about hiking and COHPs. I drove up to the old tower site. "ower" sign is missing, and no more tower or fence. Followed logging road to field, found other logging road and took it to the witness post, found the BM and from there found the highest ground. Lots of blackberries, blood on my shins aside, lots of yummy berries were foraged!
