Comments: Our abbreviated Presidential traverse tackling the five highest peaks in New Hampshire was a success with near perfect summer weather. Pretty hot out but breezy and comfortable up on the ridge. Views were slightly diminished because of the haze from fires out west, but the scenery was still spectacular. Trails down off the ridge were a bit wet from recent storms, but it was not noticeable once above tree line. Only met a couple people coming up Madison, but lots of northbound AT hikers, day hikers, and backpacker groups after Madison Springs hut. Many tourists on Washington.
