Ascent Trip Report

From Mt Flume took the Franconia Ridge Trail to Mount Liberty. Watched them raise the US Flag in memory of the victims of 9/11 and sang the national anthem. Very moving. Could see the flags in neighboring peaks too. I really appreciate the folks who organzised this event. Easy walk down Liberty Spring Trail.
