4000 footer climbed: Hale
I stayed overnight at the Highland Center in the Shapleigh bunkhouse. I worked remotely from 7am-3pm and then headed out for the Hale Brook Trailhead. It had been raining all day, but turned to mist by the time I hit the trail around 3:30pm.
The climb up Hale was rather uneventful. I listened to an audio book as I went. The trail was relatively dry, considering the rain; the water bars had done their work well.
