PB; J; the; perfect; pre-traverse; breakfast.
At 6:30am-ish we left the Appalachia parking lot on rt. 2, and started on Watson Path up Mt. Madison
Scrambling across Snyder Brook
All trails are well-marked
The temps were perfect. I can only imagine what this would be like if it was 90 and humid.
A fairly tale magic woods
First of many magnificent views
Leaving the soft woods, entering the harsh granit
It's mostly gray wind-sharpened rocks from here on out
Pretty crowded on Mt. Madison summit, one down, eight to go. I think eight... but who's counting.
Presidential Traverse with Katya, Maksim, Guy, Ilona, Sergey R., Nastya, Boris, Sergey V., and Oleg.
