Comments
Comments: I'm really impressed that I did this trail originally in the rain. Today, in much better weather, I followed the original route of the LT and it was still difficult. I enjoyed every minute of this walk and I am happy that I did this one today. Mansfield looked great through the haze of the fires from out west. Weather could not have been better.
