Comments
Comments: We continued our Long Trail project and this was the first of three days. Hot hot. Lots of great views and solitude. Bolton is just a short distance from the Long Trail with an obvious path and a summit sign. Mayo is a short maybe 100 foot whack and the summit is recognized and it was fun to find the jar and seen my friends names and dates in the register. We waited out a severe thunderstorm mirco burst in the Taylor lodge with a few other folks, a good 45 minutes. We descended to Lake Mansfield, the club, and drove about a mile to join the other parked cars waiting for the town crew to come remove a couple of trees across the road. Exciting stuff, they got the chainsaw pinched three times before a VTer pulled out his tow strap and helped them drag them away. Good work men. Well a nearby house got nailed by trees and next door trees fell across people's cars. Glad we waited out the storm. 16+ mile day. working our way to Canada...
