Comments
Comments: Got an early start which paid off for the heat; 65 degrees, overcast and a cool on and off breeze. The slide was very manageable, some wet surfaces with no running water but mostly it was dry. I was quite comfortable for the entire ascent and began to feel the humidity on the bottom half of LST as I finished - Those ascending were feeling the heat and humidity more. Great hiking day overall, peaks were clearing their mist when I got up there. Nice breeze and the cloud cover remained until I was back in the woods. Had numerous, some lengthy and all very pleasant yak stops with many wonderful hikers. A CT couple on Flume bagging their 48 (thanks for the pizza slice), a minister who was finishing his Pemi and had to get back to give a sermon this evening, two youngsters one of which was working on his over 70, six AT hikers, three LS tent site caretakers, three "pods" of young men heading over Franconia ridge and a couple with pup bagging Liberty-Flume then tenting at LS tent site for a ridge crossing tomorrow and others. (hike was 7/20, not 7/19; been outta practice)
