This trip was advertised as a hike up the Jay Range in the Adirondacks. The leader changed the location to the Monroe Trail up Camel’s Hump because the weather forecast for Vermont was better than the expected weather in the Adirondacks. Everyone who had signed up for the Adirondacks came on the hike up Camel’s Hump, plus we gained one additional hiker.
Although it was quite humid in the woods, the temperature wasn’t bad, and there was a lovely breeze and sun on the top of Camel’s Hump. We encountered several others on the top and then passed a lot of people hiking up as we were coming down. On the trail, we saw some interesting mushrooms and a green caterpillar. A couple of participants stopped at a swimming hole in the river on the drive down from the trailhead.
All in all, it was a great outing.
