Comments
Comments: Weather was perfect. Not too warm, not too hot. No wind. No rain. No thunderstorm. Only problem.... no view :( The entire Franconia Ridge Trail was socked in. Weather forecast called for in the clear conditions. Just goes to show the weather forecast isn't always right! Greenleaf Hut open with snacks inside. Pleasantly surprised to learn they also served quesadillas and burritos!
