Comments
Comments: Excellent day to hike these peaks and down over Knifes Edge. Definitely "reached into the cookie jar" desending Knifes Edge and the Chimney but was a blast. I met several other happy hikers on this beautiful day.
Today completed my N.E.67.Just a side note-Dudley trail is closed indefinitely.
