Comments
Comments: Beautiful day in Franconia Notch, and a breezy day on Lafayette. I only encountered one group on Skookumchuck and even the segments of my trip that coincided with the Franconia Ridge Loop weren't overwhelmed. The segment of Greenleaf immediately below the hut is quite wet. There are still a couple icy monorail remnants on Greenleaf, just above Eagle Pass, but they can be avoided without much trouble.
