Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Molly (50lb lab) had a fabulous time. The scramble to Avalon was the only time she needed a little help from her momma. Unfortunately, I think that scramble is to blame for some torn paw pads. She still rates it as a 10/10 day--really enjoyed sitting in the streams at the end. 
Bugs: All day but nothing too bad. Not sure what kind of bug they were, but the seemed happy to just hover around my head for 6 hours rather than actually try to bite me. Very few black flies & horse flies so it was totally bearable.  
Lost and Found

Comments: Had a great time. We were't looking for any spectacular views, but rather to just get into the woods. Avalon was a treat at the end. There was a good amount of poison ivy along the Willey Ridge Trail & I am hoping my ignorance does not get me (again) for not noticing it sooner. Quite a narrow trail, sometimes was hard to avoid getting hugged by branches/bush which was a bit exhausting. Holy crap the store at the Crawford Notch Station has ice cream and cold drinks so that was fabulous. Again, my dog rates this as 10/10 but will be sleeping for ~48 hours.
