Did lots of short little hikes. In addition to Monte Cristo, did Elk Ridge, Middle Ridge, Mount McKinnon, Dairy Ridge, Swan Ridge, and Little Monte. Wished for long pants and gaiters as lots of stuff got in boots. Lots of mosquitoes.
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
