Comments: Kinsmans/Cannon Balls overnight at Kinsman Pond. Trails were dry when we started on Tuesday. A few minor muddy areas here and there. Even the Fishin' Jimmy Trail was fairly dry. We made our way up to Kinsman Pond, set up camp and continued up to the Kinsmans. Rain threatened all afternoon but never developed. It did rain a bit overnight making the trails wet this morning. Some of the scrambles along the Kinsman Ridge Trail were a bit tricky with the wet footing. Lots of mud to deal with along the KRT between the Cannon Balls. We were going to hit Cannon as well but Tonya's knee was bothering her so we decided to save it for another time. Made a quick exit down the Lonesome Lake Trail. Lots of people making their way to the hut this morning.
