Extended Pres-Traverse planned Franconia Notch to Pinkham Notch July 2013
Hi all and thanks for validating/accepting me to the forum. I am planning a hike-Franconia Notch to JDL/Pinkham Notch late next month. I am wanting to hit as many presidential peaks as possible along the way. I have done a number of hikes in the past, Colorado, Hawaii, (Mt Washington, Kingsman Ridge, Mt Chocura) in New Hampshire, etc. Looking forward to this one as its solo. I just retired from the Army (lots of forced road marches) this past February and I figured why not take a hike. Any advice on the White Mountains in late July-weather, water sources, huts/sites to tent-which to avoid, etc., would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
