Comments: After spending the night at Madison Spring Hut, we awoke to cloudy skies and decided to head up to Mount Adams. The prior day, hikers had reported ice and snow and suggested we bring spikes but by the next morning there was no trace of snow or ice on the trail (one small patch of an exception). The rocks were dry and clear for our ascent in the morning and by the time we summited, the clouds were just beginning to pass, allowing for some exceptional views. We were truly surprised to meet John Adams and Thomas Jefferson on the summit ... With an afternoon chance of rain and thunder storms, we decided to descend rather than head over to Jefferson. Since the skies were clear by the time we reached the hut, we decided to descend down Air Line Trail. The trail was completely dry until we reached the tree line where the melt and run off made for some slow navigating of a wet rocky descent. Near the end of the trail, so long as we kept up a decent pace, the bugs didn't bother us.
