Lost and Found
Lost and Found:  
Comments: Hard to think of a nicer day along Franconia Ridge - clear skies with views out to Vermont and beyond, clearest views into the Pemi I've seen in a while. Up Old Bridle across and down Liberty Springs - a little wet rock on the agonies but footing was fine, clear and dry across the ridge to Liberty Springs with nothing but a few spots of mud between little haystack and Liberty. Lots of mud and running water on lower part of Liberty Springs but not deep and easy to to plow through. Spots of mud on Whitehouse. Got up to Lafayette early and avoided the crowds but hundreds along the ridge line as I reached Lincolns and Haystack all out enjoying the perfect day.
