Day 97, 7/11: M-1834, Zealand Pond (20mi)

Worth the wait and effort…a perfect day to be in the White Mtns.

The Franconia Ridge

…From the other direction

Enjoying the view

Mt. Washington is poking above the dark mountains on the horizon.

Another nasty descent.

Sometimes the trail gods are kind enough to throw in a ladder.

Exhausted after a 13 hour day of getting my a$$ kicked.
