Comments: Great day to be on the presi travers. I`m humbled each time I climb in our white mountains. I`m truly blessed to have the opportunity to climb not just here but abroad. Okay, the conditions were very spring like everywhere on the trek. Used snowshoes with lifts until just below Eisenhower. Switched over to hill sounds(maybe should have put them on a little bit sooner than I did) And left them on until just under the trail sign going up to Pierce. Then I switched back to snow shoes for the remanded of the trek.There are areas that even with snowshoes I sunk in slush 6-8inches. A lot of bare rock going to Monroe from the lower slopes of Eisenhower(southside). When I came back I couldn't`t believe how much more the water was running in the trail. With heavy rains in the forecast tomorrow this trip report will definitely be irrelevant. It was a fast track, 12.5 miles 5200ft elevation 6hrs 15mins. It was great to meet Ruth from Littleton and a nice couple from Concord. It was fun talking to Ruth. She`s 74 and still goes for it. Love it!!
