Comments: Camped out on the AT off 27 since I am a CVRholic. Had an awesome view of the meteors. It is in it's usual shape, but a young couple hit a rock right by the parking lot. Tried to find Fly Rod Crosby, but despite the best directions, I was Googled unto roads I am sure are not meant for cars. The route up the ski trails are straight forward and unlike any I have hiked. It wasn't as bad as I thought, until I descended. And OMG the best raspberries I have ever had. After the medical hut, it becomes the usual New England hiking trail. The sign at the AT is missing, but I just followed the blazes. The trail is in great shape, but missing enough blueberries. In the section between the Berry Picker and The Horn, there are muddy sections and one area of standing water that covers the stepping stones. The sign for the Horn is also missing. It was an awesome day to be above treeline. Just the Bigelows left. Then I can hike whatever I want.
