Comments: Yesterday was an excellent day for a full Presidential Traverse (Madison-Jackson), with great (though hazy) views, cool temperatures, and breezes. Really couldn't have asked for a better day. This was as dry as I've seen the Presidentials. Some small sections of mud on Daniel Webster, but mostly dry above treeline except in a few spots. Typical muddy spots between Eisenhower and Pierce, and damp sections of Webster-Jackson. Thanks to Denise, Chris, and Ashley for a great day on the heights!
