On Sunday I climbed the South Ridge trail of Cadillac mountain. I did not carry my backpack for this hike. We covered seven miles and it was a good walk to prepare me for the hike next weekend. I cannot wait to get onto the trail. We were not able to see much of a view due to the fog that was covering the mountain. Near the summit we found quite a bit of snow along a stand of evergreens that had incurred damage from a storm and had lost many of their limbs. I enjoyed the hike and feel ready to get back onto the AT.
