Comments
Comments: Forecast I saw last night was off. Called for no rain until afternoon but we got down poured on at 10:00 going up Willey and again going up Field. May have been a blessing as it kept conditions cooler. Skies cleared for Tom and had some nice views. Willey Range Tr. was full of 1-4" puddles as was Mt. Tom Spur. A-Z and Avalon were drier on account of slope. Changed things up a little for interest by hitting Kedron Flume Tr. (not been on since 2003) and other side of Willey (not on since 2007). If it stormed over there like it did back here in Vt. later in day it was probably a good decision to do road walk back rather than planned A-Z to Zealand--Ethan Pond loop. Best views today were on the road walk anyway.
