Comments
Comments: Bagged Mt. Blue for the Trail Wrights list. I was expecting a short gnarly bushwhack, but there is a well defined herd (Human herd) path. It was a little disappointing to see that as I was hoping for more adventure. The summit wasn't crowded, saw two pairs of AT thru hikers, about three dozen others mostly on their way up Gorge Brook while I was going down. Humid in the woods, light breeze at the summit with fog lingering. I hope the sun came out to give later hikers some views. when it still looked like the dead of winter though it didn't feel like it. Sure was different from my April trip up there. Fourth time up the moose, I'm 1 four 4 on views.
