Comments: After nearly a year, I finally got back to my “fairy tale” woods. Been spending too much time in the Whites…

The trails were alarmingly smooth. Very little mud. No cobwebs. Huh. Guess this area had plenty of recent guests this weekend.

Fire Warden’s Trail: well blazed in blue. Most excellently defined footbed. All signs up and in good shape. So much different without snow… The infamous “stair master” did not disappoint. Numerous calories burned.

Appalachian Trail (AT): well blazed in white. No caretaker at the shelter today. Spring on the way to the summit had water. Only encountered 5 thru hikers. Sigh. I guess the season is winding down. Always like saying goodbye to a good friend when the thru hikers are done… I love their stories and their energy.

Thanks to the Bigs for making their own glorious weather today. My buddy got some great views on her inaugural trip to the Bigelows.
