Comments: Took my two friends from work up Mt. Cardigan (and the infamous Holt Trail) for the first time. Great rugged hike with excellent views! Some of the scrambles were wet, which made for some minor traction problems. Had some trouble on the Class 3 scramble due to my waist pack, but I made it. Clark Trail/Holt-Clark Trail was a nice, leisurely descent. Good times had by all.

Thanks to Alanis and Kevin for a great hike!
