Ascent Trip Report1st of 4 Vermont high points for the day.
After 3 days of hiking in the ADKs, I stayed overnight in Plattsburgh and took the 5:25am ferry over to Vermont then headed to the winery. It was dark when I arrived, but the sun was starting to rise in the east. I stayed to the right of the main building, past the tent and table set-ups they had and then between the vineyard on the right and trees on the left. About .15 from the parking lot, I turned left through an opening in the trees which lead me to an open meadow. I continued up the right (east) side of the meadow to the edge of the woods. I stood at the edge of the woods as my headlamp lit up a pair of eyes staring straight at me. The eyes disappeared as I walked up the dirt road that led into the woods. Now 4/10 of a mile from the parking lot, I turned left (west) and bushwhacked into the open woods. I spent more time avoiding the maple tubes running between the trees than I did the trees themselves. I arrived at my GPS coordinates, then saw a higher point and stomped around there as well. Still using my headlamp I made my way back to the road. Once back out in the meadow, I could see enough without my head lamp. Returned to my car and headed to Fairfax for breakfast before my next peak.
