Comments: Excellent day to hike much less humid than the day before. Plenty of pretty forest and good views since the clouds were high and it wasn't too hazy.
Harrington Ponds big bridges still need a lot of help but since it has there has been little rain all our feet stayed dry. The Pitcher Plants were amazing in number and color in the swampy pond, even a few Pitchers right next to the big bridges. Met a dozen or people between the summits. Went down to North's lower ledges for the view of Kinsman Pond below. Some folks taking social distancing so serious it is hard to believe they left their couch--hurry 20 feet off the trail, along the trail is taking a beating. Bald Peak and Flume were well worth the visit, low water could stand in brook and look straight down its narrow channel.
