|Lost and Found:
||Got a late start, but made decent time to the summit. Very nice breeze on the Caps and above. Lots of big clouds today, with gorgeous views of the entire Presidential range. Also nice to hear the Cog whistle in the distance, it had been a while. Trail was in great shape and a pleasure to hike. Upon our descent we watched a slow-moving thunder storm roll in from the north country...when we looked back from the first view-spot the caps were engulfed in clouds, but it seemed to burn off just as fast as it arrived. Got to the car just as some sprinkles started. A massive downpour hit as we drove back through North Conway. |
Saw a total of 6 people on trail, everyone was stoked.
