Thanks PJ, it was fun to narrow down and find these places to explore. Daniel also had some good suggestions for us that helped. We squeezed in a lot in 2 days, esp. with the shorter days, and just getting up there and back too, and nearly reaching RI as well.
Mike showed that one group of Trachies exposed so in need of protection...think he may have mentioned a few by a house? A sheltered spot may be possible, but wonder if maybe there's sometimes wind the other direction off the water too?? Perhaps an ideal spot may be a corner, so there'd be a wall on at least 2 sides.
Otherwise the fact it hardly gets below zero should be a big help for a Trachy, maybe even for long term.
