Comments: This was a perfect day in the hills. What do I remember most about the trip? The rocks! I remember back as a kid growing up a Cape Cod how fast I could run up and down jetties. Things have changed and I don't have the same speed and confidence anymore - not by a long shot. Nuff about that, The views were truly mind-blowing and the people were awesome. Saw the auto-road from an entirely different perspective and thought it was a REALLY well maintained trail at first :) Met a lot of folks doing the Presi Traverse today. Even met a guy running the Presi in BOTH directions today; close to 36 miles. I noticed a lot of wind on both peaks and had to work to keep my hat on.
