Trip Report:
- Hiked with my brother Joe-Ben and his friend Chris Walusiak
- Left RI at 5:30 am on trail at 8:30am
- All trails were a muddy, soaked mess, resembling more of a stream than a trail
- Cedar Brook Trail was in bad shape and we had trouble locating the trail near the crossings
- Four brook crossings had boot high water, in which we removed our boots and just walked across
- Gray Jays out on the summit looking for handouts
- Finished hike at 4pm
