Ascent Trip Report

Went with my car and Sylvia's car to little parking near Rapid stream and Norton Brook. There was supposed to be a bridge at this place, but the bridge did not exist anymore. Had to cross the rapid stream. Not easy, strong current, ice-cold water and bare-foot because can't affor to wet the boots at the very beginning of this long hike. Went to mt Abraham, then Spaulding Mtn and finish Sugarloaf. We were exauted and finished later then we expected. Had to go back with Sylvia pick-up her car , and mine, at the first parking. Sylvia freaks because she cannot drive at night with her eyesight.
All is well that ends well and another fantastic day. We expected to hike a third day but everyone is too tired and we are leaving the day after.
