Comments
Comments: A perfect day for hiking. Felt like mid summer with gentle zephyrs on the ridge. A couple was married on the summit of Mt Lafayette today. Roped stakes set up on Little Haystack and Mt Lafayette to guide hikers away from sensitive alpine plant areas. Almost all surfaces were dry today that made for good footing. Jets and a glider flew by. Saw AT hikers as well as day hikers but much less crowded than a weekend.
