Long Trail Day 3

Sorry for delay but haven’t had enough signal to upload pics 😀

Early start from Hazen’s Notch was a good idea. Very challenging day with lots of big elevation & some lumps too heh.

Some neat alpine beaver ponds near the Tillotson shelter.

I skipped the Belvedere summit spur & barely made camp before dark. Tough day!

Long Trail Day 2

The day started early. Neighbors had loud sleeping pads & were rolling around. Oh well I had mountains to climb.

Jay Peak was visible through the trees right from the start. Then the trail popped out on a ski run before heading back into the trees.

No more pics after Jay . The trail was an uphill rollercoaster over Gilpin & Buchanan before turning into a downhill rollercoaster to Hazen’s Notch camp.

Tomorrow will be new trail, up for a bit I hear heh. Not sure how far I will go. An adventure!

Long Trail Day 1

What a beautiful day to start. Blue sky, sunshine & even a breeze at times. Probably 20 degrees cooler than last time I was here.

Still sweaty work out there. This trail makes you climb to the start before it starts making you climb.

Camped at Laura Woodward in my hammock. Time to make some dinner & put on more clothes. I can see the top of Jay from here. Headed there first thing tomorrow.

Long Trail Day -1

Time to try this again. It has been 4 years since that heatwave tried to kill me.

Headed up to Journey’s End tomorrow for a Sunday start. The plan is flexible & slow. Carrying a lot of insulation & food so I can camp in comfort.

I will be covering this hike like the Cohos earlier this year. Most days should see a pic or two posted here along with a bit of babbling. Video will follow after I get home.

Should be beautiful out there. The colors are starting to pop. Hopefully the leaves stay on the trees!
