Trip Report/Photos

This entire hike was tree covered. No sun block required! Only opened up to the crossing railroad ties and rock lined brooks.

After last week's "adventure....challenge!!" - Franconia Ridge and weather - Lye was a welcomed relief!

The weather was perfect as well as the company - both the two-legged and four!

Great time!
