    That's what the trail crew reported. My own experience is that the trails I was on were in good shape except a downed ladder on the way to the Pinnacle summit.

    Just to play devil's advocate for a minute, I've gotten into plenty of trouble driving while following DeLorme atlases for Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. Paper maps can have their own problems.

    Used to scoff at poles, blamed them for the scratches more obviously left by crampons. Now I am a dedicated adherent. That is what age can do.

    I still regret not getting into Nancy Pond a few years back.

    Every time I've hiked Greylock I've seen a bear, the last time going up Prospect from the Money Brook Trail.

    IMO Prospect and Williams have similar views, Fitch has no views at all.

    In Harriman State Park yesterday, Lichen Trail had the best blueberries I've had in years. Many harvesters out there. Also a black bear sighting.

    Question about Doubletop: do you start from the south or the north?

    Point to point would be ideal for me, but I'd need another car. Thanks.

    Wandered around Peak above the Nubble until we found a view vaguely northeast. No view on East Sleeper but wonderful woods anyway. I don't think there was a view on South, Middle and North Weeks all...

    Colden is really a day trip from the Loj so unless you are intent on camping out one night you don't have to. Marcy Dam can get crowded and is only a mile or two from the Loj (actually 2.3 mi.), so...

    My wife and I have always enjoyed Parker's. We used to stay at the Franconia Notch Motel until Ed left and it slowly went downhill. Parker's is quieter.
