Comments: Terrific windy day going this route to Mt Cardigan - views that were BIGLY!!!! :) I dropped down to PJ's Ledge and the top of the Alexandria Ski Trail to take a look - cannot wait for it to fill in with snow :)

Really nice trail work along the Skyland Trail!!!! On the way back, I bushwhacked a short ways off trail to the HUGE rock wall on the south side of Crane Mountain - have to be a little careful not to fall, but, it is an amazing place - caught a few rays and would have taken a short nap but decided to press on!!!!!

A little later I bushwhacked a short distance to the "unrecognized" summit of Brown - no views but I hadn't been there so it was neat.

Leaves were ankle-deep in places... no ice whatsoever anywhere and nothing was slippery! LOVE this area and this hike!!!!
