    I scouted this hike May 8 and my biggest thrill was all of the wild flowers. WoW! The other news is that John broke his arm and cracked his back so I'll probably end up leading this hike. What I noticed is that it is very steep, 500' in the first mile. The scenery and the cold war history there make it worth the effort. I hope to see you on this hike. BTW, hemlock is in abundance for those of you who need to rid themselves of that rich Uncle who keeps persisting on. lol.
