Comments: A nice day for this solstice southern traverse. Spring on Washington and Summer on the others. Cool, comfortable temperatures and clear blue skies at the start which quick changed to cloud cover sky. Trail conditions were dry and excellent all the way over Pierce then the usual AT mud and goop with intermittent dry stretches to the notch. Always nice to chat with the numerous NOBOers as well as a couple of traversers, fellow gridder and quite a few others.
