Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Collapsed tent at camp spot. Couple overnighting was going to pack it out. I figured I would they had enough to carry.  
Comments: Overnight clouds left the trails damp & slippery rocks. 1st time doing this Loop. You want solitude this is an amazing hike. Flat easy trails, several view spots of Vose Spur. Beautiful woods, so peaceful. Lunch at junction of Nancy Pond Trail. Notch Brook is a great spot for a break. Desolation Trail is a moderate climb that doesn’t relent. 2nd half is brutal steep, slippery wet rocks all the way to top. Only 6 on top, views were great though clouds Rolling in. Spent about 45 minuets before rain clouds were moving fast, wanted to be across the Ridge before it started. Rains came but not too bad, trails wet all the way down. Fantastic day!
