Comments
Comments: It was a hot, muggy, humid day for hiking. Trails are a mix of wet and dry, and a bit of monorail especially on Liberty. A few piles of snow between Liberty and Haystack. In the trees it was so muggy and no wind. Temperatures above treeline were at least 70-80 degrees. There was a bit of wind on Lafayette to help cool things down. It was nice to see a USFS Ridge Runner on top of Little Haystack. She reported the winds howled the night before on Lafayette. But little wind today. Cheers to all the people who were hiking in tough conditions. Everyone was happy and hot today.
