    It's almost half way through September and it still seems like August out there. I wouldn't be surprised if it's another slushy winter here in mountains.

    I've ended up on the ground more a few times. I think the worst was when I walked into a dead fall across the trail I didn't see at 3 MPH. Knocked me out cold. That one hurt. Slipped off a bog...

    You got a good taste of the Whites. But the fun really starts on the Franconia/Garfield ridge. It's too bad the weather suddenly turned sour and it looks to stay unsettled for at least most of this...
