    Glad they did not build it but those are really neat time capsule mid-century architectural drawings.

    I just received my Trust for Public Land quarterly magazine and it contains this nice feature article on the Randolph Community Forest. Nice photos too. I really enjoyed wandering around in there a...

    Its a fascinating story. Hard to believe that a person could remain anonymous in 2020. The guy looks eerily familiar to me although I don't think I know him.

    Coincidentally, I hiked Success and Sugarloaf on back to back days in August 2019 and the difference in the approach roads was striking. Though certainly not perfectly smooth, Nash Stream Rd was...

    I found my Sugarloaf photos. Might need to thin out the archives sometime soon as they are getting a bit unwieldy to search. So there's the stove, presumably from the old cabin, and the view which...

    Aye aye CaptCaper! I knew if I waited long enough that we'd agree on something. Sugarloaf was a great little hike on a day when rain was expected by early afternoon so I was up and down by noon when...

    Wow! That is a lot of mountains to climb in a fairly short time. I can't imagine the focus and dedication it took to stay fixed on that goal in such a dogged fashion not to mention the consistency of...

    Kind of embarrassing to call for help just .3m from the finish line but I guess that's the definition of being disoriented. The Jewell does seem to go on forever if you're tired. All's well that ends...

    Yeah, I went back and read the story and this is not the North Moat/Red Ridge loop I did. They give the distance as 8.7 miles so you're right, this is going up South Moat and traversing the ridge...

    Its a great loop. I did this hike last year and loved it. But to state the obvious, a 3:30 pm start is poor planning.

    Actually I always found your TRs to be very entertaining. They were never just trail conditions but often humorous self-deprecating short stories. I used to get a lot of info from your web site which...

    I have noted that for future reference. Sounds like a nice approach to Roger's Ledge and pretty easy as well. Thanks.

    Its often said that the drive to and from the trailhead is the most dangerous part of the day and you just proved it! "smoking worse than a fog machine at a Pink Floyd concert" is a great line. :eek:

    I've only been up in that area twice. Once to do the standard Cabot, Bulge, Horn loop and a few years later to do the loop over Terrace. If I go back, it will be to return to The Horn from the north...
