Comments
Comments: The trails were wet from the previous day's rainstorm and continous windswept fog. The Ammo rocks were quite slick with water running down some of them. No views at all until I was around Eisenhower, better once I hit Pierce and Jackson. Boggy areas between hut, Jackson, and Webster slick. Despite being in a fog bank most of my above treeline time, it was still a great hike! Spotted beaver in Saco Lake, this easy trail all but eliminated the short road walk at end back to Highland Center parking.
