YAC 5th Anniversary Return to Paine Mountain

Twelve people (six kids and six adults)headed up Barrows Road toward the Clark route and Paine Mountain. Under clear blue cloudless skies, we wandered up Kingston Road to the clearing, shedding extra layers as the day warmed up. With just enough snow to make for a wintry walk, we climbed through the orchard, a stand of conifers and up toward the ridge amid joyful laughter. We stopped at the shelter for a potlatch lunch and hot cocoa and looked out over the Northfield Mountains before tumbling and sliding down the Hawk Watch Trail through the orchard and homeward bound.
