Comments: Headed up for the sunset on Flume or Liberty but we were in and out of the clouds and were lucky enough to get a wonderful veiw of the orange sky over the Kinsmans together. Our plans were to walk the ridge under the stars and descend Mt. Lafayette via the Old bridal path but we declined this option as it was socked in the clouds all night. So we will be back on a clearer night the next chance we get. Thanks To my little hiker gal for the great sunset hike with Gumbyhiker.
