I can't imagine doing the Pemi loop in a day. I've done the parts of it, but never the whole. I think what would do me in is the Garfield Ridge section in the middle, no matter which direction I...

The state lawyers got my name & contact from the sign-in at Little Tupper. The testimony was a detailed description of the trip, focusing on the disputed part. Most of the questions had to do with...

I was last on the burn side of Noonmark several years ago, but I remember the thickets as being aspen or poplar, not beech. I'm not sure, but I have one photo (not focused on the thicket but the...
