Waumbek

Hiked Waumbek on 12/21/2014. This was peak 543 for “The Grid over 60”. Gary Tompkins joined me for this hike. The trail was well packed out and was an easy hike. Views were limited by low-lying clouds. We stopped briefly on the summit of Starr King before we headed over to the summit of Waumbek.

It was a quick hike over to the summit of Waumbek through some nice soft snow.

Someone had stuck some feathers on the sign at the summit. Looked like maybe a Red Tailed Hawk and Crow feathers.

We went back to Starr King to have our lunch and we were attacked by very aggressive Gray Jays trying to steal our lunch.
