Franconia Ridge is incredible!
This place can only be described by photos, and even those don’t do it justice:
We walked along the ridge over peaks and above the treeline for about five miles.
The quickly shifting clouds created amazing light this afternoon.
Mt. Lafayette, the tallest peak in this ridge at about 5300 feet
Because you expect to find 10lb tools at 5000 feet. (We think this sledgehammer must have been left behind by a maintenance crew)
These birds had a nest nearby and they did not budge when we got close. We found out later that they were probably Ravens.
