Comments
Comments: Had a sunny start. Mossy Falls was flowing real nice. As we got higher we entered into soupy clouds with hardly any views. We did not see anyone and had the summit for North Kinsman all to our ourselves. We felt a few drops so decided to turn around. Ended up hiking down in showers. The sun came back at the Bald Peak junction so we decided to head up there for lunch. Bald Peak was wonderful!

Nice variety of wildflowers, including lots of painted trillium, purple violets, bluebead [yellow Clitonia], starflower, bunchberry, goldthread. Air was much nicer following the storms as well with nice blue sky. We even drove to nearby Sugar Hill to enjoy the lupines. Overall a really good day.
