Ascent Trip Report

Third Peak of the AMC Boston trip. Clouds were moving in, but the trip was dry to the peak and the firetower. Climbed the fire tower for a photo op. On the way back down the Blue trail, we attempted to find the 1972 plane crash site, but couldn't find the exact spot and didn't spend too much time looking due to the weather. Continued down to the Gunstock parking lot and had some light rain showers starting just at the last quarter mile of the trip, which is why I'm calling it no precip on this leg.
