Comments
Comments: Trail was wet from the recent three day monsoon with some areas of pooled and running water. Some wet ledge immediately above the bridge, but ledges above treeline were mostly dry. Encountered no snow or ice. A few areas of late fall foliage colors.
Chilly sunset, but neat to see the snowcapped Franconia Ridge and Presidential Range (as well as a little on Moosilauke).
