    Default N Switzerland trail and Pennsylvania Gulch Report



    Thought I would get this started. Beautiful day to be out. I was nice to meet Mike and his children. And good to wheel with James again. I won't mention Jim cause this is the third time I have been out with him this spring. 🥱 We finished up about 1PM. Had an early lunch at Mt Alto and then talked a bit at the top of Penn before airing up and heading home.

    When James and I finally left PennGulch - a forestfireman flagged me down - "did you smell or see smoke, we have a report of smoke, but I think it was just the wisp clouds" No smell or sight by me - but those wisp clouds sure were neat.
