Comments: A very windy low visibility morning on Mt Lafayette to Mt Lincoln as well as the quick hike back to Mt Truman where I dropped down into the slide following the drainage until approx 1/4 mile before brook where I found open woods and crossed the brook ending up on Lincoln Brook Trail. It was nice speaking with two other Gridders on the Ridge this morning as well many others including a hiker on Owls Path nearing completion of their 48. Stunning views descending the Lincoln slide as well Owls Slide. Great views of the Bonds as well shortly before the summit of OH.
