My Fifth Activation of Mt. Waterman (W6 CT-012) 8038 ft, 27 May 2015

Mt. Waterman is one of my favorites; a moderate hike of about 6 miles total, 1200 ft or so elevation gain, and very pretty terrain through pines, cedar and boulders. Started at 0620…nice to start in the light and not at dawn for a change!

I found that Sulphur Springs Road to the trail head is being resurfaced, more about this later…most of the resurfacing has been completed. Started at 0630 and had a nice ride up, took one and three quarters hours, the final mile…
