Comments: Got to Crawford Notch about 9:10 and the lots were full but plenty of parking along the road. I was down by the Jackson lot. By the time I came out around 4:15 it was evident that both sides of 302 had been used as a lot. Saw several people but never really felt busy. I imagine with the good weather, many headed up the Presidentials. My 1st time (out of five total) on Willey where I could see more than 100 feet. The view from the outlook ledge looking into Crawford Notch is well worth the trip on a good day. Next time I'll try out going up the steep side. I haven't been since the trail work a couple (few?) years ago. Forgot how rocky the Willey Range trail is between Field and Willey. Did check and the last four times before Sunday had been up when there was snow above 3,000 feet or lower. (April, Feb 2x and Dec.) Willey I'll do dry but the next Field trip likely will be in the snow again.
