Ascent Trip Report

Started out at 4:30 p.m., much later than I wanted but I was only in the area for the day. It was a quick up and down the Burrows Trail, but not quick enough. The black flies, knats, and other bugs were as thick as I've ever seen them anywhere. Even with repellant they were drawing blood all over my arms and legs. Once I broke above the tree line to the alpine area there was barely a breeze so no relief from the thirsty creatures. The views up top were fantastic. Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks to the west, the New Hampshire White mountains to the east, and the Vermont Green mountains in every direction. Well worth the pint of blood I lost.
