Comments
Comments: We Started out at the Wild River Campground and took the Highwater Trail to the Black Angel Trail for the to enjoy the trails less traveled. It had rained hared Friday the night before we started and a few people on the trail were having a hard time crossing the rivers and brooks. We Didn't have too much trouble. There was a lot of moose activity on the Black Angel trail.
Sunday was beautiful on Mt Hight got some nice views of the Presidential Range. Still some snow in places on Mt Washington that made for nice pictures. We stayed at the Imp tent platforms. Only four of us there besides Decklin the care taker who was very nice.
On Monday some light rain. We Hiked to Mt Moriah to enjoy a foggy summit. Nice change from the hot sun the day before. The hike down the Moriah Brook Trail was a bit tricky for the first 1/4 mile. A few big blow downs made the trail somewhat difficult to follow. It took us a few tries and a few extra seconds to navigate. Then the rain made it a bit muddy for about the next half mile but not too bad. A bit overgrown on the bog bridges. After that smooth hikeing back to the Highwater Trail. We enjoyed the Cascades on the Moriah Brook trail coming down.
Thanks to Mike for a great hike
