|Lost and Found:
||Reel Brook Trail was generally dry with some minor mud in a few places.|
Ascent up Kinsman Ridge had some muddy spots, particularly around Harrington Pond (sunken bog bridges, etc.). Some slippery ledge as well. Nice, scenic, less crowded feel than the normal popular routes.
Mt. Kinsman Trail was a little slippery in parts up high, but from Bald Peak down was mostly dry.
Clouds persisted for a good portion of the day, but it helped keep the heat somewhat in check. Fairly humid however.
