Frank and I drove up to handicapped parking area and walked to summit. New tower only went up one story, but Frank enjoyed conversations there while I poked around. A wedding party was having photo session while we were there.
Route up/down: Summit road to parking area, path to summit
Nearly hit a deer driving down the Taconic Parkway enroute to the trailhead.
Met one AT through hiker, saw another man with no gear, checking out the signs. There was no car or other vehicle nearby, rather puzzling.
Nice weather and views.
Route up: AT From Long Hill Road
Route down: AT down to Long Hill Road
