Tunk Mountain (Cherryfield)

We hiked Tunk Mountain today, getting to Monument Vista (0.2 miles before the summit) before having to turn around due to time constraints.  I had visited Tunk in March 2019 but had encountered significant ice that prevented me from ascending the mountain.  Today, by contrast, there was significantly less ice (although cleats were still needed on portions of the trail).  This is an incredible hike, starting with a relatively flat mile through a forest and past two lakes, and then a climb that is steep at parts, requiring some scrambling and at one point climbing up rungs.   

Here is a map of our hike.  Out total hike was a little under 4 miles today.
