It looks like after years of construction, the big 787 construction project is coming to an end. It feels like it’s been going on for decades. 

With the light rain, I don’t know if I’ll be able to go to the park tonight, as everything is bound to be wet. I’ll see what happens. 

The Friday express bus was 15 minutes late. We are now making good time heading home as there is no traffic on the road, except for a brief slow down for a tire changer. I expect to only be ten minutes late at home. 

Gas is now down to $2.20 a gallon at Glenmont Stewart’s, a price I never thought I would see again. Eventually, gas prices will go back up. 

Going to be a quiet, relaxed weekend I hope. I did bring home some stuff from work to do. That’s good, because I’m tired from traveling all over.

The highest point on the unit is Debar Mountain, which, at over 3,300 feet offers a broad distant view of the high peaks region to the south. Some portions of the DMWF have been split from the unit to create the Chazy Highlands Wild Forest, which is located to the northeast of DMWF.

Trails on the unit offer opportunities for hiking, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, horse back riding, mountain biking and snowmobiling. Popular destinations within the unit include Debar Mountain, Azure Mountain and Debar Meadows. Other popular pastimes are hunting, fishing, canoeing and boating.
