Looping Purity Spring

Scrapped the track work for an easier run from the house. Jim Johnson came over and we made the call on the fly to head down and loop Purity Lake via Fox Road. On Fox we checked out a driveway that had nearly 300' of elevation and had previously only reconned on maps. There was a cabin at the top that definitely hadn't been accessed/lived in for quite some time. Will head back there to see what's beyond their property to check out Lyman Mountain.

From Fox Road we headed down an old carriage road that links up with 153 and stopped at Long Pond to peep the foliage. The maples seemed to be perfectly interspersed between the evergreens. From 153 we looped behind Purity Lake via Sunset Road then came back across the front of the lake and went up King Pine via Slow Pokey Pine trail, the easiest route up. And to wrap it all up we ran down Scotch / Crooked Pine to the Tohkomeupog Council Bowl. 

It was an enjoyable 10 miles. That's over 7k of vert for the past three days and I'm tired but feeling more durable than I ever have.
