Comments
Comments: While we got drizzled on a few times today overall there was not that much rain..In the clouds all day with windy conditions on the summits..No views though local looks at the brilliant foliage were excellent, particulary by the beaver ponds on Zealand Trail and along the A-Z Trail where long stretches of birch glades glowing yellow contrasted nicely with dark green spruce and red hobblebush.. No pics today in the expected rain but a good day on the trail with sabrina and Terra
