Comments
Comments: Beautiful hike to Mt Carrigain. Nice breeze on the summit. it was nice meeting and speaking with Al and company on observation deck as well as fellow Gridders,White Mountain Wanderers, and many Hikers enjoying this beautiful day. Although Mt Washington was in the clouds the views were awesome. Today I took what appears to be a short section of old trail which is immediately after first steep section on the ascent where trail bears left. it was somewhat steep but was an interesting change of the normal route before rejoining the current trail. This combined with two other sections of abandoned trail at lower elevations was nice
