Ascent Trip Report

Beautiful day, easy hike. 1st 2mi of trail dry; last 1.5 a bit wet but not muddy. dry boots again.

received a call from Pat re: dad as i neared the summit.

summit is open, rocky, and very windy. great views; i could even identify a few peaks. one hiker pointed out the nearby Worcester range.
stayed up there for about 1/2hr. i was wearing my down coat and winter hat and still very cold. many casual hikers had not thought so far ahead as to bring winter clothing.

took lots of foliage photos... went to the alchemist afterward for a beer and bowl of soup.
