Comments
Comments: A fine day to finish out the Presi's for June and get the true highpoint of Franklin for TW72. A prior TR last week noted spikes where helpful, they are no longer needed as the monorail is only about 15 feet long and avoidable on Ammo. Snow free otherwise along the route. Mostly in the clouds all day to about Pierce then we where low enough to be below the cloud bank. All in all a fine day. Found another one of those painted bricks that guy keeps leaving on the summits on Jackson. I packed it out.

For you flower lovers, Diapensia can be found virtually along the entire route, Lapland Rosebay was plentiful between Monroe and Ike, and even some alpine azalea was found around Franklin!
