Comments: The scouts and the leaders of Manchester NH troop 91 hiked out of Pinkham Notch to the summit of Wildcat D to set up the flag on the observation deck. There was also a group at Wildcat A with the flag.

As noted previously the trail is in good condition. There was one or maybe two small trees down that caused no problems. Only a few muddy areas that were easy to get by.

Great views over to the Presidential Range as even Mt Washington's summit cleared by 2:00PM.
