Comments
Comments: Great day today! Parked at 7:07, the little parking lot at the sugarloafs was full, so I parked at the side of the road, as did others. Hiked to Mount Hale summit in 56 minutes, and wasted my energy a little bit on the way up to Zeacliff and Zealand Mountain, but I managed. Zeacliff has an amazing view, doesn’t get much better than that. Met a few people on the trails today, but not too too busy, no wildlife sightings however I did see four toads, three little snakes, a couple gray jays and a squirrel! Even though both summits have no views, there are some viewpoints along the way, and some ponds, a waterfall, and a hut, so plenty of pictures were taken today! 29 down, 19 to go!
