    Vermont got snow, mostly above 1500'. I was near Burke on Saturday and it was pretty well covered.
    Hopefully this means we will have a big winter!

    I was very skeptical when I saw this because there have only been around 20 documented cases of a black bobcat.
    But then I saw a comparison photo of a confirmed black bobcat and it looks just like...

    Agreed. Especially this summer where we had basically no rain/inclement weather. It is getting extremely cold in the high elevations now to the point where you need to come prepared for winter...

    I climbed Mount St. Helens in 2018 when there were wildfires regionally at that time.
    The air quality was horrible. My wife and I coughed, snored loudly, and hacked up nasty mess for nearly a month...

    History of Mount Willard trail?

    Yesterday I climbed Mt Avalon and Mt Willard.
    The Mt Willard trail almost looks like it was a road of some sort at one point. There are massive concrete culverts in the trail which are way overkill...

    Spellman and Red Spot are the two most challenging up.
    Pumpelly is the longest (and best) route to the top in my opinion.

    Can you drive to Success Pond?

    Is Success Pond Rd (NH) open and can you get up to Success Pond (or the immediate area near it)?
    There have been some storms lately, so I figured I'd just check first.
    Thanks a lot!

    I have been using North Face gore tex shoes the past few years on drier hikes where I don’t anticipate encountering a lot of mud and I really really like them. Worth a look on their website to see...

    No sign of flagging or herd trail evidence between the two summits. No sign of human activity whatsoever. Felt really remote and wild.
    Nothing but bears, woods and blueberries!
  16. South Turner and whack to North Turner yesterday (Maine)

    My wife and I are on a little whackation in Whackxter State Park.
    I would say South Turner has the best postcard view of Katahdin. Great perspective of both Baxter and Hamlin peaks.
    It took me 2.5...

    We did have a saw but since the top of the tree portion blocking the road wasn't that big we thought it would be quicker to just jump out, yank it back and proceed. Next time I will definitely take...
