My favorite place for hiking. Date Climbed: Jul 13, 2012
Made a trip to North Furlong Lake. Seemed a bit long and strenuous at the time due to my terrible smoking habit that I quit a few months ago. I made a trip to Griswold Lake sometime in June of 2013. Easy and beautiful especially through the aspen trees until I reached the last 1/4 of a mile and did some decent class 2 scrambling over massive boulders and lost my footing a few times. I reached Verdi Lake the day before my trip to Griswold. I went straight up the mountain from the Terraces Picnic area with some difficult class 2 and 3 in some places to reach the lake. Very strenuous and difficult. I went for a short hike on the Lamoille-Talbot trail last week with a few buddies. I found it particularly easy but was turned back because of ice and snow near the top and didn't have crampons. Planning to reach most of the peaks and all of the lakes this summer as well as complete the Ruby Crest Trail a few times!
