Comments
Comments: A good day for a hike, albeit cold and windy. The severe wind chills kept the half-hearted masses at home, leaving the open trails for the bold. Only trace amounts of snow. YakTrax could have been helpful for the icy boulder hopping up Falls Cut Off Trail. My Kahtoola microspikes would've been overkill if not hazardous. Fantastic views from Grand Vista and Chaugham Lookout. Stopped over at Whittemore Grove and took some aerial footage of the Farmington River with my new DJI Mavic drone. Check out the video link if you're interested.
