Comments: 1st Presidential Traverse attempt. Skipped Mt.Clay to get to Washington before doors closed was
almost out of water. Somehow missed Eisenhower Loop, by the time I realized it I was done. Followed Crawford Path back to truck. Beautiful day, light breeze, Sunny. Trail conditions were good until Crawford Path just past Eisenhower Loop to just above Mizpah Cutoff. Wet trail, standing & running water, & mud. Can't wait to try this again next year, what a great hike. Need to rethink how much water to carry, I went through almost 15 liters. The combination of warm temps, breezy & sunny all day really sucked the moisture out of me. I carry 4 liters at a time. Don't want extra weight but I struggled to stay hydrated all day.
