Comments
Comments: This past weeks temps have done a number on the snowpack! Wow! Avoidable/negligible monorail enters just shy of the Franconia Ridge Junction. Off and on monorail along FRT to Flume and back. We did the entire hike in bare boots, spikes would have probably helped but we love cheap thrills. Firm mono in the col from F/L. Otherwise the mono is narrow its one foot on, one foot off, or straddle it cowboy style. Yeehaw.
