Comments: Gorgeous weather day. very dry and well beaten from the bike path to the Flume Slide Jct. That trail starts off easily with some minor puds and brook crossings but very easy going to the outwash from the slide. Slide had a few slick and slippery spots..I took several of the bypasses but the ladies stayed on rock the whole ascent. Certainly some pretty steep spots but little loose rock and plenty of handholds as needed made this an easier ascent than I anticipated.

Glorious along the ridge and we lingered on Liberty for quite some time. Amazingly watched a woman duck down todo her business right next to the summit!!! Very classy. Nice dry footing down Liberty Springs where we chatted with a couple of thru hikers. Excellent day out in the woods followed by a fine swim at the Eddy on the way back to Ashland. Great day out with Becca and Valerie
