Mark I knew you folks were going to have an amazing time when you told me what you had planned. The waterfalls, as your pictures show, must have been incredible. You are correct in stating that this is one of the most amazing ridge lines to hike on. Franconia Ridge, on a blue bird day, can not be beat. What is amazing is if someone is so inclined you could do a 30 mile loop day hike from the Wilderness parking and take in the ridge in one day. I would much rather do it the way you did and enjoy being up there. Why rush across such a beautiful section of wilderness. I was glad to see you made it over to Moats and had a great lunch. Again nice to see you had such a great trip!!!!!!
