Subject: Presi Traverse - pretty much did it all.

After having to bail out miserably last year due to high winds on Jefferson gotta do a little bragging this year. Friday, with an iffy forecast, started up Madison from Pine Link with my brother, Jonathan and my Labrador, Sam. Jonathan bailed after the Madison Summit/Hut with knee pain and went back down Pine Link to the car, cursing the route selection (Pine Link is rough) the whole way down. Weather stayed just barely clear the whole day. Sam and I went on to get JQ Adams, Adams, Sam Adams, Jefferson, Reagan-Clay, Washington, Monroe, Franklin, Eisenhower, and Pierce. Went down the far side of Pierce with Jackson and Webster in mind but at Mizpah hut my feet had had enough with the darkness coming on so Sam and I went down the the cutoff to Crawford Notch. I'll take 11 out of 13 and call it a traverse - Jackson and Webster weren't named for Pres's anyway - that's what I keep telling myself. Sam was a champ but 48hrs later now he and I are both still moving rather slowly. Tough footing/pawing all day long took its toll but it was worth it. Epic day.
