Comments
Comments: A day of variety on the Franconia Ridge. We started in sun, entered fog and clouds at Lincoln, and it cleared nicely on Lafayette. Sunny and bright all the way down. I took a good tumble on the steep section of Old Bridle path just below the hut. Slick wet rock under feet and not paying attention. So pay attention! Other than a scraped up knee and a bruised ego I'm fine.
