Comments
Comments: Had the trail & summit to myself. Everyone else went up Chocorua. That must have been a zoo. Hot hot humid in woods. No breeze until summit, even then minimal. Great choice to hike on this holiday, only saw 6 hikers all on my way down! Love being in the woods by myself! Had my 1st bear encounter just past 1st river crossing. One crossed the trail 20 yards in front of me, never saw me! So cool to see, highlight of my hike. What a beautiful animal! I hung back for a few to make sure no cubs were around.
