Comments
Comments: On Saturday night I attempted a single-day hike of the Pemi Loop (within 24 hours since I couldn't fit it into a calendar day). I started from Lincoln Woods at 6:10pm and hiked the loop clockwise. I saw a few people on Osseo Trail and a couple on Mount Flume but then had the trail to myself through the night until I got beyond South Twin in the morning. I slowly made my way to the Bonds and out by 2:20pm. Lincoln Woods, Osseo and Franconia Ridge trails were dry and in great condition. Garfield Ridge was slick with some minor mud, and Bondcliff Trail was wet with some areas of significant mud down low. The weather was great, though some clouds were hanging over Lafayette and South Twin. I will have a full trip report with photos and a video up on the blog eventually.
