Ascent Trip Report

Had a very steep climb up south side of Cannon on Kinsman Ridge Trail. The Kinsman summit views were totally socked in but the fog started to lift as I was hiking over the Cannonballs and by the time I got to Cannon, it was partly sunny. Great views over to Franconia Ridge from the observation deck. It was pretty cool and very windy on the deck so didnt stay long. Scenic hike down Hi-Cannon Trail. Stayed at Lafayette Campground for the night.
