Comments
Comments: The walk to the A-Z junction with the Zealand trail was quick. There was still some standing water on the trail from yesterday’s rain. I walked a short distance down A-Z (0.2 or so) and started bushwhacking south to Whitewall. It was mostly glades and hobble with very little thick going. This is a very nice gradual climb. Great summit with views in many directions.

I decided to make a repeat visit to West Field, exploring some interesting ponds on the way. There is a little thick going in the col. From west field I headed to the A-Z, staying high to come out close to the Tom/Field col. Staying high resulted in some tough side hill walking and some thick going. Once I hit the trail I did a quick side trip to Mt. Tom.
