Outside of Brattleboro are two fun loops, A loop & B loop. I learned the hard way that it was actually the Bee loop, and the A loop was created later.

Fortunately, my reaction was limited to pain. The worst thing was that they first started stinging right in the middle of the crux climb.

I didn&#39;t see but felt it, exhaled hard, tried to brush it away, and felt instant pain on the inside of my lower lip.  Within an hour my face was swollen like a pumpkin.  I was just plain lucky not to have inhaled it.  It is a drought year and they are always more numerous in dry years, also more aggressive as the summer turns to fall.  Now, after a day and a half of benedryl and ibuprofen, it is rapidly subsiding.  I hope nobody else has this experience.
