Comments: Beauty of a day!
Hiked up and back on Chandler Brook trail - what a beautiful rugged trail full of waterfalls! A couple of the crossings, I wouldn't want to do in higher water than today.. And it was a little rougher than I was expecting, but awesome!
Buttress is supposed to be the easier way into great gulf from Madison hut, maybe it is......but by no means is it easy. Great wild trail!
Osgood in good shape, was happy to see my car at the end of this great loop!
