Friday Hikers: AT: Yellow Mt. Gap to Little Hump, May 20

Collins Chew reporting

We had a beautiful hike in pleasant, cool weather to Yellow Mountain Gap and on the AT to Little Hump and back to Big Yellow Mountain where we crossed over to the magnificent bald for lunch, then return.  Views were hazy but nice.  Wildflowers were out in profusion; white fringed phacelia and wood betony (lousewort) perhaps the most spectacular with occasional carpets of bluets. Hikers were Jack Aaron, Lee Bockman, Olin Babb, Kathy and Jerry Case, Anne Cosby, Carol and Dave Dunham, Bob Harvey, Jan and Chuck Mather, Susie Seiler, and Collins Chew.
