rlawsonLaura Cowles up - Sunset Ridge down  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2010

rlawson

Perfect weather. Up and down in 1 hr 48 min. On the run down, one of the hikers saw me and said to his friends, "hey look, someone under 18 who still has good knees." As I ran by, I said back "f%#@ that, I'm 43!"

Climbed sunset ridge route. Amazing views above tree line. My four year old son actually did the whole thing himself.

Nice hike, but a lot of fog prevented any picture-taking.

Date Climbed: Sep 27, 1987
It was so clear you could see the buildings in downtown Berlington! Mts. Washington and Marcy were covered in snow and it looked like you could hit them with a driver! I think you could even see the buildings in Montreal! The Autumn leaves were at there peak and there were hundreds of people on top. Even a TV crew was there! HP #20 for me. Got all 50 in 2002. Got the NE 111 in 2001.

Hiked up the Long Trail on my first day ever in Vermont (a beautiful state). The fall colors were in full force and the setting was very nice. The trail up has a steep grade with a few small waterfalls and some nice scrambling near the top. The weather was marginal on the summit that day and unfortunately there was no view from the top. I descended the Profanity Trail back to the Long Trail to make a nice loop. Three hours round trip.

We were lazy -- took the toll road up and then hiked over to the high point from there, pup in tow.

It was still awesome -- views incredible -- if we'd had more time I'd have gone for a full hike up. What a gorgeous mountain, fantastic autumn views of the valleys below.

It was absolutely frigid on top, but the colors were fantastic! Shocked some lady when she saw me wearing shorts. :)

CRiedel2First TimeTo Vermont  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 9, 2009

CRiedel2

Decided to check out Vermont for the first time this past weekend. We camped at Underhill State Park and I hiked up the Sunset Ridge Trail to the Chin. It was supposed to rain, so I hustled a little quicker than I would normally. It was cloudy, but there were still great views. Detoured to Cantilever Rock on the way back down.
I plan on going back to the area and checking out more of the trails VT has to offer. Went to Ben &Jerry's the next day before heading home.

A great hike but no views above treeline because of weather. Called my Dad from the summit to wish him a happy Father's Day. Would love to go again for the views! HP #4.

Date Climbed: Sep 1, 1985

Ok, maybe not the overall 1st ascent. But the oldest documented on summitpost.org (as of this entry), and it was my daughter and my first state highpoint. I subsequently visited 49 state high points, and Vanessa summited 39.

I literally could have stayed on this summit the entire day. Was cloudy and foggy when we got near the top, but the skies opened up, and it was absolutely gorgeous. I can't wait to go back to these mountains!

Long Trail from Rt. 108. Good hike up starts in beech forest and ends above timberline in sub-alpine tundra. Great views from top, but trail was very busy.

Climbed via the Maple Ridge Trail from Stevensville. Saw dozens of salamanders for most of the hike. Lots of mud and even a few patches of snow. Great views during the hike along the ridge to the Chin. There were a ton of families who had driven up to the Nose and were hiking up to the Chin. It was Memorial Day Weekend after all. My second state highpoint!

ChinigoMansfield Loop - up Long Trail, down Haselton  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2008

Chinigo

Weather was better than expected (partly cloudy), though because it had rained the day before everything was wet and the streams were running! Going up was almost a continuous ascent, and the climb to the Chin was great fun. (I also made a side trip to the Adam's Apple.) Someone left a pair of red poles (Leki?) by the side of the trail - where it got steep between the AA and Chin - I hope they retrieved them later. Views were sporadic due to the clouds, but that was expected.

As usual, I met and talked to many nice people along the way, especially at the Chin summit and at the visitor's center. (Thanks for the water purification tablet!)
