climber46Route Climbed: Long Trail from Lincoln Gap Date Climbed: June 8, 2005  Sucess!


When you get bit by a black fly, it injects an otherwise harmless neurotoxin that causes thoughts to come into a person's head, "Hike in June, hike in June." This assures the black flies of an annual food supply of hikers.

I chose to hike Mt. Ellen and Mt. Abraham in June because I had a trip that was taking me that way anyhow. I kept a fast, steady pace and managed to avoid getting bit up real bad. This hike is a very nice ridegewalk with many vistas looking at the Sugarbush and Mt. Ellen ski areas, and Mt. Abraham has an alpine area that is above treeline.

After the preceding week of rain, the trail was pretty sloppy. Bugs were a bit annoying on top (black flies). Quiet day on the trail. Great views from this peak, but a little hazy to see all that could otherwise be seen.
