It was cold, but not as bad as I thought it would be.

The AT is still in pretty bad shape, though. There were so many blowdowns! The mile of switchbacks down to the shelter reminded me of Mahoosuc Notch, except with tree branches instead of boulders. It was more of an obstacle course than a run. And since it was an out-and-back, we got to go through it twice!!

It was nice to have some company on the climb up to the turnaround, and the sun even came out for a few minutes.
