Comments
Comments: cloud cover and forecast made this a good choice for today and others thought the same as ran into john g and per along the way. New stonework on Avalon trail impressive nice job!! newly and well placed bog bridges eliminate several of the habitual mud spots. Trail over to Willey while well blazed is getting narrow in places. Beautiful fern and moss trek from Field over to Tom. Toim spur has also seen some work which is appreciated with some bog bridges and a nice run of steps heading towards the summit. Several folks out o=today. weather improved as the day went on .. muggy at the start there was a real nice and refreshing fall breeze along the ridge and while cloud deck was around 5000 there were great views looking off to the pemi. Delightful summit view from Tom today…great day in the woods
