Comments
Comments: Trail was bustling on a clear Saturday morning. Clear skies and excellent views through mid-afternoon before the rain came. Misting necessitated some careful footing on Greenleaf on the way down. This is a popular trail, for good reason. The ridge never disappoints. (Please ignore prior duplicate post, in which I sleepily wrote that this trail "never fails to disappoint." Apparently being tired makes me write the opposite of what I think! Franconia Ridge is worth doing again and again.)
