Thirteen seemed like a lucky number on Labor Day. That is how many people hiked up Battell Trail in Lincoln to the top of Mt. Abraham and made it back down – without incident. We couldn’t have asked for a more lovely hiking day – pleasant temperatures, a mix of sun and clouds and a slight breeze at the top to dry off our damp shirts. The group consisted of very experienced hikers, so we made good time. Some of us stopped for creemees after we all got into separate vehicles at Hinesburg Park and Ride.
