Comments: Excellent hike of these peaks despite very limited views. Moderate temps and light wind made for a great hike. With skies starting to clear on N Kinsman I opted to visit and old friend-Fishn'Jimmy 🙂. It was nice seeing the hut bustling with activity and views from Lonesome Lake were outstanding. It was also nice crossing paths with a familiar hiker on the Cannonballs as well as a brief chat with a NoBo thru hiker and a few others enjoying the day on the Kinsmans. A big thanks to NoBo Twinkle Toes for sharing advice and options with my wife for an AT hike in the future. It is greatly appreciated and best of luck heading to Baxter!
