Comments
Comments: In the clouds today on Franconia Ridge. Visibility was maybe 100 feet. Everything was pretty wet. Skookumchuck was not too muddy, and other than a handful of blowdowns, generally in really good shape. Greenleaf had a fair amount of running water and much more mud than Skookumchuck, mostly below the Hut until you get to the hardwoods. Two small patches of ice near Eagle Cliff on Greenleaf, easily navigated without the need for any traction, and will probably be gone in a couple of days.

Nice talking briefly with the group at the Skookumchuck trailhead - thanks for the NH political history lesson - and congratulations on the single season (spring) 48.
