Ascent Trip Report

Started at 5:30 AM from parking area. Climbed with my 16 year old son Ryan. Had a great hike through the forest and along the Ammonoosuc River up to the Lake of the Clouds hut. Met some other hikers who had been on the Appalacian Trail for weeks. Reached the summit and stayed on top about an hour. Came down a different route on the Jewell Trail. Very hot and no wind! Unusual. Fun climb after having done Mount Mansfield in Vermont the day before. HP #3.
