We were six on a beautiful April day where it felt more like mid-July. We were joined by four friendly newcomers, including a couple from Hannover NH and a woman who lives just down the road.
The hike was mainly along fire roads with no to very little traffic.
We engaged a few people along the way, including a very friendly Bernese Mountain dog and her owner.
We skipped lunch as people had other plans.
