Comments
Comments: Small muddy section at very start of Gunstock Mt. Tr., otherwise bone dry conditions. Saw 4-5 other parties in Gunstock summit and maybe a dozen on other trails. We didn’t want to chance thunderstorms on Piper so we skipped it today.
Always a great vantage point to the Whites. Our first return to NH since mid March; we still rigorously mask up and social distance in deference to the truly locals, and am grateful to have caught this beauty today.
