Re: Today's Hike

Great shot!

I finished a couple days on the Long Trail in Vermont on Friday. Aside from a bit of ski touring this winter I haven't really done much in Vermont, always a pleasure to hike somewhere totally new.

Re: Today's Hike

A quick run up Cashmere Mtn that turned out to be a 18 hour saga ending with a monumental brush battle...

Looking down on 8 Mile Lake

In the basin below Windy Pass (Cashmere Mtn in the background).  We skied here this same weekend last year... there was still about 3 feet of snow.

On the shoulder 850 ft below the summit of Cashmere Mtn (8450 ft.).
 

Shortly after making the summit, my colon began to go spastic... for the first 2 hours of the descent, I could not move a quarter mile without having to take a shit.  A poorly plotted shortcut that resulted in a miserable brush battle, along with the constant need to stop and shit yielded no time savings.  In fact, in hind site, backtracking 8.5 miles from the summit would have been quicker.   Made it back to the truck shortly before midnight... 7 lbs. lighter and legs torn to shreds.

Glad you made it out "ok."  (All relative right?)

Looks skiable to me.

Surely that had to be a Freudian slip.

Re: Today's Hike

Hope things are back to....um, regular?

Our Yesterday's Hike was a bit more pleasant.  No time for the narrative now so I will reverse my MO and give you pictures first and fill in the narrative later.  I'll leave the picture of our crew at the trailhead sign out and  wait until Tuesday to add the narrative, see if you guys can figure out our location, which included a trail that Newsweek rated (circa 2009?) one of the 10 best hikes in the U. S. of A.






















































The tower put us about halfway (2 miles) through the hike, 4 hours into a 6 hour adventure.

Maybe Storm King or Break Neck Ridge?  I bet Jason or ML will know.
