In the mountains

Spent Saturday hiking the southern Presidentials, from Ammonoosuc Ravine to Dry River Campground. First stop, Mt. Monroe with an amazingly clear view of Mt. Washington.

The trail from Mizpah Hut to Dry River was wacky. The Dry River Cutoff Trail was not dry and not much of a trail. This section was navigable. At one point I had been following a boot prints of a lone hiker. They ran out and were replaced by moose tracks. Calf-deep mud soon followed, then two river crossings, one where the suspension bridge has failed.

Sunday, I hiked Mt. Tom and Field and stopped by Pearl Cascade to cool my feet. It might have been the hottest day of the summer this year.
