Comments
Comments: Super day for this hike with beautiful weather,light winds and dramatic clouds. No sunrise was seen on Mt Madison and Mt Adam's was nearly socked in with sun trying to come out. Despite the very limited visibility on Adam's had a great conversation at the summit with another hiker traversing. Skies cleared shortly after descending Adam's. Unfortunately there was a tent set up on alpine grass shortly after joining Gulfsideb from Lowes Path this morning. very sad.It was great chatting with a hiker I haven't seen in the Mountains for quite some time on the ascent to Mt Washington as well as a hiker working on their Grid on Mt Eisenhower. Refilled water at LOC.- lightly chlorinated but much tastier than last year.it was nice seeing so many out enjoying this fine day.
