Comments
Comments: Today, the girls and I teamed up with Isidora and her mom, Kelly. We carspotted, then traversed Tom from west to east. I'd never been on the western section of A-Z before -- I LOVE this approach to Tom. Mellow, scenic, lovely.

Had a wonderful time with Isidora and Kelly. Hope we get to hike with them again soon.

We ate toffee and taffy on Tom. Desserts on the 48 continues! Trip report will be posted on my blog this Tuesday morning. This was Alex's 3rd time and Sage's 2nd time on Tom's summit.
