Comments: Day 3: After listening to the Frog Orchestra all night we refilled our water bottles at the just barely flowing stream into Dream Lake. 2 liters each. Bog Bridges near Page Pond have a bunch of rotten logs. We refillled at Trident Col Campsite. Just a nice tiny stream served via a leaf filled our bottles in no time. Water was clear and cold and good. Yup the trail still needs brushing. Ledges on Cascade were hot but we had nice views. We met at least a dozen Nobos as we neared Hayes' summit. Burnt trees on the Centennial Trail, wow that must have been some fire. We had left our car at the beginning of Hogan Road in our rush to get to Grafton Notch, just added a flat 2/10ths. Here we met a group of MerryVista campers taking a break before they pushed on to Rattle River--great kids. They couldn't wait to go swimming. Bria and I cleaned up and then headed to Grafton for some yummy ribs at Road Hawg. Great two night backpacking adventure! thanks Bria.
