Comments
Comments: Lonesome Lake Trail, to Fishin' Jimmy, to Kinsman Ridge to Summit, descended High Cannon

Underestimated how difficult monorail traversing would be. Some parts only about 3-4" wide. Easy to make a bad step, sink up to your hips. 6 hour hike took 8 hours. Worst part was after the junction of Fishin' Jimmy and Kinsman Ridge toward summit. Stretch until Lonesome Lake cutoff was brutal. Coming down High Cannon not as bad. Solid and consistent, predictable steps on monorails.
