Comments
Comments: A really nice day with temps from 55 to 70, sunny early then clouds and sprinkles by 3PM. Rain came down hard when I was headed back home on Route 2 in Newry. Saw about 60 hikers and 6 dogs. Nice views at several areas on these trails. An early start gave me time to get to Speck Pond and Mahoosuc Arm.
