Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Unfortunately saw no dogs, they might have struggled with the last climb before the summit  
Bugs: Very buggy on the way up and at the top. Few bites with spray, but anytime we stopped we were surrounded. Less of an issue on the way back down, which was a relief 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: found a pair of gray sunglasses at the summit  
Comments: This was an incredible hike, highly recommend. We saw woodpeckers, white throated sparrows, warblers, toads, pink lady slippers, snakes, and so many different mushrooms. It was a fast hike for the 10 miles, and only really got steep at the very end. The views were insane, and I would gladly do this hike again.
