Ascent Trip ReportFrom Franconia Notch Visitor Center up the Tuckerman Ravine Trail then to the Lions Head Trail. Returned using the Tuckerman Ravine Trail.
Went with Gudi, Kaekae, DJ and Cheryl. Weather was OK in the valley, but was socked in at the summit and a 55-60 MPH sustained winds just passed the Lions Head. Needed to hold on to Kaekae to keep from being blown over!
The last part across the ridge was in complete fog, seeing maybe 2 Cairns at a time. Reaching the summit, the first thing we saw was a car!
By the time we returned (after having a warm meal in the restaurant) it began to rain. Yucky weather, but a great adventure.
