Tuesday, 03/02/10 Green Mountain

Met Wayne at Chautauqua, jogged the road to the Gregory TH to avoid the copious amounts of mud along the way. We started off jogging the Amphitheater Trail, but it was a bit steeper than Wayne was used to, so I let him set the pace.

He jogged most of it and I hiked behind him chatting away about our upcoming trip to the Grand Canyon. It was much warmer than it has been (fast approaching shorts weather), but the snow was still nice and solidly packed on the front side which was a welcome surprise.

Made the summit in a very relaxed 47:15, then jogged the down in a quickish, but not pressed 21:34.
