Franconia Notch Backpacking

Last weekend 5 of us (me, Heather, Courtney, Shannon, Bill) went on a 3 day, 2 night backpacking trip in the Franconia/Pemigewasset area of New Hampshire. We did a loop that went along the Thoreau Falls trail to the Seacliff trail, up to Mt Guyot, and then along the Bondcliff trail and out to the Lincoln Woods visitor center. The hike was 30+ miles in 3 days. Although it was July, we had temperatures in the 40’s at night, and some rain on the 2nd day. Luckily we were able to wait out most of the rain at the Guyot campsite lean-to. We got some good views the 3rd day as we traversed the Bondcliff trail. I brought along my GPS and I have a tracklog, but I haven’t had time to do anything with it. I will at some point.

Last October I did a similar 3 day loop with Bill and Amy. We went along the Franconia ridge trail that summits Mt Flume, Liberty, Lincoln, Lafayette, and Garfield. I took some slide photographs, which I later scanned. Unfortunately I had one too many filters on my camera which resulted in some unexpected vignetting in the corners of some of the pictures. The pictures also have a nice 70’s look to them since they are scanned slides.
