Comments
Comments: Incredible day for a Franconia Ridge Traverse south to north. Going up the Flume slide with some wet rock was a fun experience. Temps were in the high 50's/low 60's but a biting wind made it seem less than that above tree line.
Overall spectacular day to be on the Franconia Ridge with 360 degree views!
