We will meet at Old Bridal Path Trailhead on the Northbound side of route 93 (Franconia Notch Parkway).
Boots on the trail by 7am so be there by 6:30-6:45 to distribute gear.
We will break at the Greenleaf hut to snack and stock up on water.
Then on to the summit to assemble our rig.
What to expect:
According to MWOBS data temps can range from 9 to 69 degrees with average daily temps between 36 and 46 degrees. It may be windy too.
We plan to be on the summit for two hours so bring proper gear: http://hikesafe.com/index.php?page=gear-list
I have a 4’x6’ US Flag with a 14’ extendable Painters Pole. It connects to the pole with carabiners, wire wraps and duct tape. The big challenge is tying it down in a manner that will stand up to the winds at 5000’. I have some rope but we may need more.
Anyone who has a camera please bring it along, take lots of pictures and post them to the Gallery on FOT48 website.
