Comments
Comments: My original goal was to just do some maintenance on Lincoln Brook before it was too late for winter. Ended up running into some old familiar faces and a few new ones. Took the black pond whack (which on the way back some care should be had as it takes you to the OTHER side of the lake. I was on auto pilot before i noticed) to LB. I wanted to set up the trail for winter, and i feel i left it ready for you trampers. Brutus was delightful to go down, its lower this year than in years past but hardly a 'whack'.

15th summit of the bird. Whooooo ya!
