Lonesome Lake, Franconia Notch State Park, NH

We took Lake Trail to Dodge Cutoff to Hi-Cannon

The trail was a bit steep, and I did not trust many of those rocks. Beautiful though!

Today we did a short but challenging hike up to Lonesome Lake, and then further up to Cannon Mountain (4099′). Total distance 5.5 miles with 2621 feet of ascent. This was the first hike in which we brought along a GPS unit, and the first hike in which we ended up needing it. Go figure!

The clouds were looking ominous so we made haste down the mountain
