Comments
Comments: Started out extremely windy and cloudy and turned into a bluebird day. I was able to wear microspikes for this entire hike. The ascent up Lafayette did have some ice flows but the micros worked great. The Franconia ridge trail between Little Haystack and intersection of Liberty Springs trail had a decent amount of snow but for the most part it was solid. The trail was a little difficult to follow in spots but between old postholes and gaia I figured it out. From Mt Liberty to Mt Flume was well packed and solid. As I descended down Liberty Springs trail the sun had softened the snow a bit but still was well packed.The bushwack to the bike path still has some snow but is quickly melting. The bike path still has alot of soft ice. Micros were no problem.
