Comments
Comments: The trails up to Cabot were mostly dry despite the recent heavy rainfall but, as expected, the Kilkenny Ridge Trail south of Cabot and the Bunnell Notch Trail were slop fests with mud and running water underfoot. Saw two other people on the trails all day. Nice to meet and chat with Bill.
Lovely hike with Chris with attractive views and stunning woods. C/2 46/49.
