Ascent Trip ReportAfter a day of rest from doing Allen, I did a 20 mile hike, starting with Marcy. This was the first peak out of 4 for the day. On the way up, encountered a young lady who was planning on hiking Phelps, Tabletop, and Colvin in the same day. Holy Crap!! At the summit, there was a group of 3 guys. One guy's goal was to be on the summit of every high point, not necessarily hike them. They had just done Marcy, now they were going to hike out, drive as high up on Mansfield as they could, summit it, then spend the night in Franconia, NH. They would drive up the Auto Road for Washington and somewhere over the long weekend, do Katahdin. All of a sudden, my hiking plan didn't seem so crazy. Fantastic day to be on Marcy. After the 3 guys left, I had the summit to myself for about 10 minutes. The trail stewart showed up as I was leaving. Onwards to Haystack.
