Comments
Comments: day 4 of hiking with my nephew Ben. Blue sky coming through the Notch quickly turned to overcast. Lower reroutes very rooty in spots. I took Ben the old way to show the storm damage which is still pretty interesting to see and easily travelled. Got a quick shower which greased up the rocks just as we started up. Thunder to the south as we approached the ridge and after a bit of debate we continued and did not get rained on the rest of the way. Nice views with clear and swirling clouds along the ridge and we stayed on the tower a bit watch the storms to the south. Tedious descent at times. The woods in the lower sections were lovely today. Congrats to Ben for getting number 32 on this trip!!
