Hadley Mt. explorations

On this beautiful day, an early morning quick stop at the summit and then using various paths, cairns, and then compass, explored various ridges and outlooks with more open views of the High Peaks region. Of course still snow on the distant summits including the cone of Marcy. Great view of Crane Mountain. On the descent late morning, spring beauty wildflowers, lots of families climbing up, and oh no, a first encounter with some (non-biting) blackflies. Other than a few muddy crossings, extremely dry conditions with minimal running water. Dirt road in good condition for all vehicle types. Dozens of yellow-bellied sapsuckers on the ascent and croaking ravens and a few distant hawks over the summit.
