Comments
Comments: It was a great day weatherwise. Some sun, high clouds and a spritzle on Mt. Lincoln and approaching the TH on the Gale River Road parking. Lots of hikers out on Franconia Ridge but otherwise we had the trail to ourselves.
Met a thru-hiker from Munich, Germany, 87 years old! He looked tired and said he is heading for Gorham and then will call it quits; but still an amazing feat at his age.
