Comments: Lots of people out today. First time on Lowe's. Lots of nice grade and views up higher. Couldn't see any Irene damage any more than an ordinary hard rain might cause. Star Lake Tr. fairly steep when first coming off Adams (Some dogs or hikers may not enjoy it). Star Lake Moose laying near lake attracting quite a crowd. She's been there a while(have seen other reports on VFTT of her last week). Nice day out in the Northern Prezzies.
