Comments
Comments: I'm really glad I tried this loop, since I have done these peaks many times but via the traditional loops of Flume/Liberty, ad Lincoln/Lafayette. The Franconia Bike Path (friendly to pedestrians) has now helped me multiple times this year making interesting loops of Kinsman and Franconia Ridges.

Weather turned out better than expected with views from all peaks except Lafayette which was still stubbornly holding cloud. With the humidity up, temps were relatively warm even with a whipping wind early this morning. Super fun!
