July 4 (Friday)

July 4 (Friday) - Met Kevin bright and early at the Liberty/Brook trailhead (but we did neither Liberty nor Brook).  1:50:11 with 2400 ft of elevation gain up Mt. Paugus (the climb is a ballbuster).  Bolles Trail to Bee Line Cutoff to Bee Line to Old Paugus Tr. up over Paugus (zero view because it was raining and completely clouded in) then down Lawrence Trail to Cabin Trail to Whitin Brook Trail and back down Old Paugus to Bolles again. A slow, steep 8.15 miles!  It was a grind!  My hearing has vastly improved over the course of the last 12 hours or so. 

I'll leave you with some of my favorite 4th of July / Patriotic photos from years past:
