Comments
Comments: I inquired on the Tuckerman Ravine Trail status at the AMC building and was informed it officially opened today. I'm glad I stopped in since the trailhead signage indicated it was closed in the ravine. Later I met an AMC worker who was taking down the closure signs. When I returned I still saw the closure signs at the trailhead. What a great day. Very clear skies and gentle breezes. The rocks and ledges were dry. There is no snow or ice on the trails although there is snow in the Tuckerman Ravine headwall and a few spots high on Oakes Gulf. The Tuckerman Ravine Trail parallels the largest snow field that is undercut by water flowing down the headwall (the snow arch). It is advisable not to venture on to the snow as it may collapse without warning. Saw Labrador Tea, Mountain Avens, Alpine Bluets, Bunchberries, Mountain Cranberry, Bog Laurel, and Mountain Sandwort. The old Summit Stage building has been demolished. A Crew was working on the foundation. Many ATVs in the summit lot. The walk on the Camel Trail is in the midst of the alpine lawn with sweeping vistas and a great view of the Mt Washington summit cone. The Camel is seen when walking from the Crawford Path as you near the Davis Path.
Many hikers out today including kids 6, 8, 9, and 13 years old all having a good time.
