Comments: Never caught up to the cigarette smoking Long Trail hiker ha ha. Up the Long Trail, side trip to Adams Apple was in swirling clouds but the clouds cleared on our way back to the Long Trail. About a dozen people on summit along with care taker (I gave him a Kit Kat bar, nice guy). Super day to be out with my VT friend Laura. Good open ridge walk, much like Franconia. We went across to Nose and took work road past antenna farm then followed old blue blazes back down to the Long Trail where signs said trail was close, oops. Then from auto road parking lot we walked to the Haselton Trail, screaming zip liners above our heads was interesting addition to the day. We walked over to Stowe's mechanic shed and had a short bushwack to notch road and short road walk back to the car. First time in summer to enjoy Mt Mansfield.
