Desolation Wilderness 2016
My Nessmuk trio.
had a good weekend enjoying the sunshine.
my goal was to get up to Bolton (VT), where i usually hunt, and just take a look around. i also ski up there, and every trip, i'd see a footbridge. it connects the Bolton/Stowe side (East) of the Long Trail to the Camel's Hump side (West). it was put in last year, and i have never been on it. so, i just had to stop and check it out.

i did still head up to Bolton after, but really only had time to get into the sandpit and do some shooting.
Ok, i was able to take some time Easter morning and get on up to where i hunt today. if you look at the map above, i head on up the access road, but it is off the map.
looking up the road, you can see the lower mountain of Bolton Valley (where i ski)
at the trail head. the water was crystal clear. a nice way to start.
i was psyched to find all these little chocolate Easter eggs everywhere. they were delicious!
here is what was tagging along today. no, i don't need 3 knives on a day hike, but the F1 and the little GEC are new to me, so was testing them out a bit. (i like both)
and, i'm back....
stopped on the way back down the access road to snap a farewell pic of Camel's Hump....
Happy Easter everyone.
Good times! Looks like winter is done there too. Go easy on those Smart pills you found, you'll get a belly ache.
ha. and yeah man. crazy winter. but, i have flipped the switch. waiting for trout season and some more hiking. cheers.

Fishing on Lake Simcoe
Quick hike after work yesterday and spotted this beast heading underground. He was at least 3 feet long and as fat as my forearm.
Darn... I'm in SoCal too, I know these well, though I have yet to see them this spring. I did two hikes recently, Monrovia Canyon (to the falls) and up to Inspiration Point after stopping at the old hotel ruins--on the Pasadena side of the San Gabriels
This is the first one I have seen this season. He's definitely been active and eating though, he was a biggie!
Yes he is--just showed my son; he thought it was cool.
Had some time to play last week
Gave my 5 a nice workout.
Batonned this to some nice small pieces to start the fire with:
The 5 splits like no other:
The end result
On the App trail.

Alert: in spite of the head in the dirt, that is NOT an ostrich.
