||Beautiful day for a hike. Scenery was superb, partly cloudy/sunny all day. Took Boot Spur up to Davis Path and then to Camel to Crawford, stopped at lake of the clouds hut for a quick bite and then hit Monroe. Please note that Crawford Path around Monroe is closed currently, you must summit Monroe to reach the hut.|
Backtracked down Crawford up to Washington where I hung around for a good 30-40 mins, made some good friends and thank you NJ girl for taking my picture at the summit for me. Summit was pretty busy with people but the trails were mostly empty for a full parking lot. Took Nelson Cragg to Alpine Gardens trail which if you've never done is beautiful. Highly recommend taking Alpine Garden if you get the chance.
Lions head was a steep climb down to Tuckermans Ravine which is closed from that junction, you must take Tuckermans over to Boott Spur BUT I DID NOT. I wasn't thrilled about having to go up in elevation and add more mileage to my trip so I didn't follow the signs and came across the guy replacing the bridge. Awesome guy he was, stood and talked for a good 20-30 minutes, he was wicked funny and very cool and didn't care that I came that way. Crossed the river and went back to Pinkhams parking lot. Also, about the bridge, he said they expect to be done in 1 month or so but it must be completed by Oct 9th per USFS.
