Ascent Trip ReportAfter spending a rewarding day hiking along the Franconia Ridge Tr between Mt. Lafayette and Mt. Flume, I returned about 4:30P to my car at the Greenleaf Tr TH at Franconia Notch---just in time to catch the last aerial tramway of the day to the top of Cannon Mountain---a very scenic, justifiably popular 2-mile ride with great views.
