The training continues. The day after my fire tower adventure, I headed north. The weather in the valley remained nice if a bit dry. The forecast in Franconia Notch was for snow showers as I left for Lonesome Lake Hut.
We had a little more than snow showers. I was hiking alone and not equipped for heavy winter weather. I was forced to turn back. It was a beautiful day though.
I returned a week later and finally made it to the hut on May 3. The weather was still overcast but passable. The hut was yet to officially open for the season, but I had a nice conversation with the caretaker.
