Comments
Comments: sections of the trail in very good shape..others pretty rugged with recent erosion. always seems wet on this side so moss is a factor as well but with foot placement no real issues. hazy socked in views with fog on south kinsman didm warrant lingering long..nice little breeze felt good on the ridge but the climb was stifling with HHH conditions..hydrating with pinot noir as we speak. first back to back since winter as hip pointer injury finally coming around..hurt at times but managed…great to be out..finished up august knee grid today
