Comments
Comments: Bluebird day for Franconia Ridge with plenty of sun and heavy wind this morning. I used my "backup" microspikes between Mt Lafayette and Little Haystack. The need was border line but felt much more sure footed with them on. There was very little ice between Little Haystack and Mt Flume. There were many backpackers out today enjoying the weather for today and days ahead.
