Comments
Comments: There are a lot of drops for rocks and bog bridge materials along the Crawford Path. An Americorp work group was placing rocks on the Crawford Path using a sky line just uphill of the Lakes of the Clouds. The section of the Crawford Path from the Mizpah Cut-Off up to the Webster Cliff Trail was wet. The Crawford Path around Mt Eisenhower had wet areas.
Mountain Avens, Labrador Tea, Rhodora, Bunchberry, and Alpine Azalea were in bloom.
Saw AT thru hikers, Presidential Range traversers, and tourists today. Some hikers were displaying flags on Independence Day.
