Comments: Moose Bosom (formerly Squaw's Bosom), Mt. Veto

I followed Doubletop trail from the north to the major drainage. I bushwhacked up the drainage, staying at 2,000 feet or just below for the initial approach and angling towards Bosom. The woods in the drainage were nice and open, unless I pulled up too high. I got onto the slope northeast of the peak and headed straight at it. Woods were not difficult until the very top where things got thick. The summit is recognized and have very nice views.

I then followed the ride towards Mt. Veto, going over the bump in between woods were mixed with open ferny sections in some places, match stick forest in others, and very tight scrub in others. I soon scambled onto the summit of Veto (recognized) where there is a very nice view, taking in Double top, Bosom, Baxter, Hamlin, OJI, Barron, Brothers, Fort, Mullen, Travelers, and more. I headed just north of the peak and dropped into the drainage. taking a similar route out.

Moose Bosom was my final peak to complete the New England 3,000 Footers.
