It was an absolutely gorgeous day. I left home slightly after 5 AM arrived @ the trailhead 10 min before 8 AM. While driving down route 115, there was a SUV flashing its headlight toward me, being raised in the city where that could mean "Wanna buy drugs?" I ignored the signal and continued zipping down the road.

As I arrived at the trail head, Jim, John and Jeff all mentioned that they saw mooses on route 115 and 3, then I realized the SUV probably was trying to signal me to slow down for the mooses. Wow, I was obsolutely clueless. There was probably a flock of mooses dancing along the road and I didn't notice.

The forecast for Gorham was 52 F, sunny but windy. We started the hike at 8:26 AM
