Ascent Trip Report

A long series of climbing knobs reaching to the final knot of heights in the paralleling Power-Line clearing, visited most all choosing the easiest from trail of the highest as final high point to mark; at descent, resting at Geocache Midnight Vultures' outlook up above busy back yards and roofs of Morestown Rd where turkeys joined my lunchtime westward views with their excited gobbling, further along met another flock this time crossing my trail in quiet rustle, my descending back to Burnt Meadow Road by way of another stop at the North Summit's north to south expansive eastern outlook. Enjoying turkey close-up, did not seem possible earlier today when I barely made turkeys out thru rustling in distant woods when descending from Green Pond Mtn. A final flourish of wildlife into memory after three days of chasing peaks.
