Comments
Comments: Bluebird day for these peaks. Trails were in great shape overall. I was able to bareboot for the entire hike. Micros made great bear chimes. There was plenty of mud. Some was avoidable some not. It was nice meeting Waumbek and chatting today.Its definitely a small world!
I met many other hikers also enjoying this beautiful day-and couldn't believe my eyes but I saw a hiker in flip flops.
