After a pouring rainstorm the night before, we woke up the day of the hike to clear blue skies and seasonable temperatures. We met in South Burlington, picked up some passengers in Vergennes and drove to the trailhead in Adirondacks via the Crown Point Bridge.
The trail was wet from all the rain, so we had to hike carefully, especially on some steep uphills / downhills on rocky terrain. But, everyone did well. At the top of Noonmark, we enjoyed lunch in the sun and the very nice 360 degree views.
On the car trip home, we stopped at the Dead Creek Wildlife Area and saw several hundred snow geese. A very pleasant day!
