Twelve of us are hiking to see the stunning views from Franconia Ridge on Little Haystack, Mounts Lincoln, & Lafayette. Meet, gear up, and be ready for a prompt 8:30 start time at the Lafayette Place parking lot on the northbound side of I-93. This loop hike is 8.9 miles round trip, 3,900' of elevation gain and a book time of 6.5 hours. We'll take a bit longer to enjoy the fantastic views. Full winter & wind gear is required for the likely conditions.

A far cry from Columbus Day weekend in 2003 when the temps were in the 50-60's up high.

As long as there are views, it'll be spectacular. I'm leaving in a minute. Going camping for 4 glorious days. Warm days, cool nights. Lotsa firewood!
