Ascent Trip Report

Second time doing Franconia Ridge, very beautiful trail even in poor weather conditions. Hiked in thick fog the entire time, sun came out on our descent. So, no views from the top, but gorgeous views of the ridge, looking back. We went up the Falling Waters trail to Little Haystack, then on to Lincoln top (which we could not even identify because of the fog - so we took photos on three different local "peaks", just in case) - finally on to Lafayette. It was very crowded, despite the fog, but we rarely saw any people on the trail, thanks to the fog :)
