We enjoyed a day of hiking on the Long Trail to Whiteface Mountain on October 16, 2011. Smith Brook crossing was a bit challenging but by placing a few well placed large rocks we were able to cross safely. The trail is obliterated on the opposite bank and was quite a scramble.

The sun illuminated the leaves off and on throughout the day and the day ended with more sunshine. Bear Hollow Shelter looked in good shape.

Particpants: Carlene Squires and my dog Callahan, Phil Hazen, Mary Keenan, Daniel Scheidt, and Paula Mordini.
