Comments: Today was a great hike. I really enjoyed the views hiking up to sugarloaf. About a 100 ft before breaking out of the tree line I saw a huge fisher cat. At the summit I was in the clouds with rime ice and 40-50 mile an hour wind gust. I headed over to Spaulding, nice hiking on the Appalachian trail. 39 degrees at summit. Could see sugarloaf wasn't in the clouds anymore so on the way back I hit the summit again and was rewarded with spectacular views. 12.2 mile hike back to the car. Driving out on the caribou pond road I got a video of the biggest bull moose I've ever seen. Good thing I could only go 10 mph in my Mazda because he just about walked in front of me. I'm not good at guessing how many pounds he might be, anyone want to guess email me and I'll send you the video ✌🏻️✌🏻️✌🏻️
