"So, I headed up to New Hampshire on Saturday morning with a plan of hiking a southern presidential traverse on Sunday since the weather was supposed to be perfect. Luckily, Kim came with me to act as my personal shuttle to pick me up in Crawford Notch after dropping me off at the cog Base Station. I started up to Ammonusuc Ravine Trail at 7:15am and made my way up to Lakes of the Clouds Hut. The weather was absolutely perfect and I quickly took my jacket off on the way up. The trail is easy to start, but quickly gains elevation after reaching the gem pool. I put my jacket back on at the hut be" - LGH-Tom, Apr 23, 2017
"Amazing day with sunny skies, temps in the 20's and to top it off very little wind. It was an incredible day to hit Monroe and Washington and I would say the hundred other people up there would agree! Snowshoes up to the hut, crampons to Monroe and Washington, over Washington to Jewell we switched to microspikes. At treeline we returned to snow shoes. Fantastic weekend to bag the last of my presidentials (winter)." - shay-shay, Mar 18, 2017
"Great day for hiking upper elevations, bright blue sky and temps in the 50s and a reasonable wind. Went up Ammonoosuc Ravine and took Crawford trail south to climb Monroe. Bagged West Peak on the way." - Alohabuffy, Nov 19, 2016
"It was an amazing day on the Presidential Range. The clouds stayed away from me on the summit of Mt. Monroe, and I had a great view back down the range towards the Crawford and Franconia Notches. I came up the Ammonoosuc Trail, and bagged this peak before heading over and summiting the big guy, Mt. Washington." - HikeLikeMike, Aug 20, 2016
"If at first you don't succeed, try, try, try again. Last week we got blown off of Madison before we could summit. This week we did a last minute change of plans as the weather looked favorable for a traverse. Temps were at least 30 degrees warmer (more if you include the lack of windchill). Just under 20 miles over the highest peaks in NH." - markst-john, Mar 26, 2016
