Will hopefully be getting back over to the Adirondacks next weekend. In the meantime, today I hiked Mt. Abraham. At 4,006 feet, it’s the 5th highest peak in VT’s Green Mountains. I hiked it from the Battell Trail, which connects with the Long Trail at the Battell shelter. It’s a steady ascent with some flatter sections to break it up, and a few fun scrambles near the summit – 5.8 miles roundtrip.
Mt. Abe looming in the distance, on route to the trailhead.
Everything is lush and green – my favorite time of year to walk in the woods. 🙂

I think all this rain we’ve been getting has been good for the fungi.

Hm. I think I’ll go in the woods.
Typical of the rock scrambles on this hike.
Summit of Mt. Abe.
Mt. Abraham has a gorgeous, 360 degree panoramic view from the summit.
Under the clouds you can just barely make out the Adirondacks rising above Lake Champlain.
