Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: All crossings were fine, though my dog got a little wet crossing Cascade Brook near the junction. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: KRT from Lonesome jct. to Kinsman jct. is in pretty good shape considering the Halloween Storm. Not many blowdowns to speak of on that section. Franconia Ridge, on the other hand, is a complete disaster between Liberty and Little Haystack. More blow downs than I could count, some of them extensive. Hop-overs, walk-arounds, and way, WAY too many crawlers. This was not a fun time, especially on dying legs. OBP has been cleaned up pretty well since the storm. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: I brought Piper along and he had zero issues, but the ice on the Ridge from LHS to Lafayette was absolutely treacherous with less than sharp spikes. Watch the dog. 
Bugs: Tons.
