Ascent Trip Report

So I came across some long misplaced photos of past hikes a few days ago (5/2020). One of them was of this north half of the Franconia Ridge Trail from Little Haystack to Lafayette during the summer of 1990. This time I went up Falling Waters and returned down Greenleaf / Bridle Path for the loop. A pleasant reminder of hiking in my younger days.
