Comments: like summer up there today. trails in good shape with lots of dry trail and some mud. a few wet stretches on lend a hand which are pretty standard. nice day to finish my may grid. got a late start so the hike up hale was pretty hot, but nice once at elevation.

really enjoyed the off trail hike up to south hale. nice view of the presidentials and willey range from the small west facing cliffs you can see from lend a hand trail. good day to be out.
