Comments: Beautiful, wet trek!

It rained on and off on my drive in, but it stopped by the time I parked and got started. It sprinkled a few times during the hike, but barely worth mentioning. Dripping from the trees kept me damp, but with hardly any wind, I stayed plenty warm, even up high. The cool temps also kept the bugs away, I didn't see a single one all day.

Took Avalon trail all the way to Field, made short work of the out and back to Willey, then hit Tom on my way down to A-Z trail for the walk out.

Only a few trivial patches of snow left on the side of Willey. There were a few people out braving the wet conditions, all having a grand time.

I saw a moose on my drive in, just after entering Crawford notch! He was young still: all legs!
