Cannon Mountain via Kinsman Ridge Trail (solo, 2017-06-17)
A nice solo hike on hot and beautiful day. I expected the trail to be more packed than it was given the weather and location, but I only passed a little over a dozen people on the way up and there were only about a dozen people at the top. Parts of the trail were much cooler than the air, the views of Lafayette and Lincoln ridge were amazing, as were the views South down I-93 and North towards Vermont Canada. I stopped several times to soak in the immense beauty and even heard two song birds singing in unison, their calls echoing across the valley. Refilled my water at the Cannon Mt. lodge at the top where visitors who came up via the tram were also walking around.
