Comments
Comments: Did this one with Monica. We woke up without a plan but during breakfast we decided on Waumbek because of the forecast for the shorter, less exposed mountains - clear skies, “warm” temperatures, and minimal wind. The result - a late start, an early finish, and another great day outdoors. Saw Howard Scott Aronson along the trail and Mike Cherim at the Highland Center after the hike.
