Comments
Comments: Great day hiking. Winds were 30+ mph at times, but there were intermittent breaks in the clouds which allowed great views of Mt. Washington. Descending Watson Path was very difficult. I would recommend avoiding this trail if possible. I wish I had backtracked to the Madison Spring Hut and descended Valley Way.
