Comments
Comments: Long, hot, buggy loop in the eastern Whites today. Trails were in generally good shape aside from a tough to navigate section of the Cold Brook Trail right before the Evergreen Link, a few patches of snow right before the summit of Speckled, and one or two major blowdowns on the Miles Notch Trail. Was nice to finally hike with summer conditions again, minus the bugs.
