    I have hiked numerous sections already this season. While not as bad as past years the mud is there as well as blowdowns. Tread lightly on our trail for now. It will dry out.

    My dog walks about 10 yards in front of me almost all of the time. You won't confuse her with a feral dog wearing her red pack and sleeping pad strapped on top.

    I agree with the comments on Prospect Rock. The side trail from the Rock into town is steep and the last thing you want to do is stuff yourself with food and have to climb it at the end of the day....

    HIked up to Prospect Rock this morning and did a section towards Stratton just to see what it was like and that area seemed no worse than normal so the damage is probably limited to certain sections.

    You can knock a pound off that pack instantly by removing the strap laden top pocket. It is an awkward fanny pack at best and you have plenty of room for everything without it.

    Hey Jeff! I was at Grout Pond, similar elevation to the LT in that section, and saw lots of tree damage while tracking a Long Tailed Weasel. Never got a photo of him though!
