"1.5 day trip to work on NE 67. Day one: Old Spec in the morning Saddleback and the Horn in the afternoon Day two: Sugarloaf and Spaulding in the morning. Saw lots of AT Hikers, got real sweaty, roughed it on some really great maine mountain trails and slept in my car falling asleep with the Milky Way above. What a trip!" - shay-shay, Sep 21, 2017

Our weather was a little cold and windy. Dark clouds threatened rain the whole time. Amlittle sun here and there." - Alohabuffy, Aug 8, 2017
