Ascent Trip Report

Great time on the Franconia Ridge Traverse - Skookumchuck to Osseo/Lincoln Woods. Perfect day for it - partly sunny, little wind, mild temps and views for miles. Fewer people on the ridge than I expected for a beautiful weekend day. Skookumchuck trail, Ridge trail from Little Haystack to Liberty, and Osseo down to Lincoln Woods were particularly quiet - only meeting a few others a long the way. Went with Jeff, Emily, Rick and Casey.
