Comments: While driving home from Nash Stream Forest I was trying to think of somewhere to go which wasn't a big time consumer due to afternoon commitments. I came up with the bright idea of hiking Cannon - the moose I saw along Route 3 near Haystack Road didn't disagree so off I went. The lower slabs were mostly wet with some occasional running water but there is enough of a 'jumble' that these areas could be navigated with caution. The rocks on the upper portion approaching the summit were fine.

The entire time I was on the observation deck (45 minutes or so) visibility was maybe 30 feet in most directions with only slight breaks to the NW and S. On the plus side not a whole lot of folks were coming up by the tram so it wasn't the zoo it might have been on a nicer day. Quite a few folks were coming up the trail in the early afternoon as I was on my way out.
