Comments
Comments: Had a stellar day with my daugther, Caleigh who is 2 1/2. she walked about halfway up the trail with me but then the rest of the way I carried her. The trail is considerable dry and easy grade. Switchbacks are consistent all the way up. Footing gets a little rough about halfway and near the top with some wet slabs to work around. Very hot but the wind helped. Had great views- could see Mt. Washington easily. She fell asleep near the top which made me work for it. This is what stopped me from heading over to East peak, along with the chimmney. I'll save it for another day.

Also a little funny story- don't rush yourself before going on your hike. Locked my keys in my car and had to wait 2 hours for triple a with my daugther...she was very paitent luckily but double check and make sure you have all of your gear before you lock your car!! -Benzowski
