Made a nice loop around the Greeley Pond Trail (from the Kanc), past the ponds, up Tripoli Road and the over the Osceola's.
The trails were fairly clear of snow and spring was evident everywhere along the hike. Still haven't seen any moose or bear, but I did hear lots of birds and caught sight of a hummingbird at around 3000 feet on the ascent of Osceola.
The ponds are serene and there was no wind when I got there. The summits were a bit crowded for my taste, but the views from both were nice....The AMC guidebook doesn't seem to like the viewing from the summit of East Osceola, but I found two nice lookouts that do the trick.
I easily beat the weather since I started at 7:15am.
Nice day and sure was easier than doing Sabbaday Brook Trail 2 weeks ago. I'm looking forward to some really long hikes this summer.
(I'd post some pictures, but it seems they can't reside here and I don't have a home for them...yet)
