I can't sum up the trip any better then my hiking partner did. GGG thanks for a great time. Let me add a little to the expirience by saying this. The money spent was more then worth it for the time spent up on the mountain. The staff at the huts does a fabulous job and the staff at the Observatory, with volunteer Natalie, leading the tour more then willing to give us a view of our life time. I highly recommend trying this trip or one of the other huts that AMC offers. The trails were in good condition with the exception of some muddy spots but that is mother nature, so enjoy the trails but hike safely. And if you do spend the night on the mountain, remember this, the first sip of a good drink, is well worth the weight on the hike but just like us plan on sharing with your table mates. It is amazing what a few onces of a good brew among fellows hikers means. GGG thanks again and I hope to get my pics down loaded tonight.
Last one to the top buys the first beer!
