Cabot

Hiked Cabot on 12/20/2014. This was peak 542 for “The Grid over 60”. Mike Lynch joined me on this hike. Trail conditions were almost perfect with a packed out trail and only a couple of blowdowns to deal with. The temperature was only 3 degrees when we started out but it warmed up into the 20s and with no wind it was a very pleasant day.

We made our way up to Bunnell Rock and admired the views and soaked up some sun.

We made our way past the Cabot Cabin and over to the summit of Cabot. There aren’t any views from the true summit but there are from the little knob just beyond the cabin.

We ate our PBJs at Cabot Cabin and were joined by a Canada Jay. It was not at all aggressive about stealing food. All it did was look at us and eventually flew away.

We left the cabin and made our way back to the car.
