Comments
Comments: A very pleasant day for this hike. Mostly sunny sky and comfortable breezes. The trail is dry with a few areas of flowing water - excellent condition overall. I saw no one on Glencliff during my ascent but happened across a couple of moose. There were still no humans going over to South and I had the summit to myself for enough time to eat my lunch and take in some sites. There were no bugs with the comfortable 5-10 mph breeze. I passed a few people on my way up to Moosilaukee. Solitude again for the last 1/4 mile and for 20 minutes or so on the summit which was very unexpected. The breeze was a little stronger but not an issue at all. I came across a momma quail sitting in the trail at the bottom of Glencliff. She charged me long enough to let her little ones scatter before she took to the woods herself. Feathers all flailing and neck feathers doing the whole velociraptor thing. Better a momma quail than a momma bear.
