Comments
Comments: Met several groups coming across A-Z from a stay at Zealand. Plan on wet trails and lots of mud. Summits were completely socked in with clouds today so decided not to hit Willey on this trip. Rewarded with some clearing and views on summit of Avalon on descent. The moderately steep and rocky descent down Avalon Trail from Field was extra challenging as there was a fair amount of water running down many of the ledges. My first time back to these peaks in 20+ years.
