6/9/2019: Mt. Lafayette / Franconia Ridge Loop (White Mountains, New Hampshire)

From the Franconia Notch parking area off I-93, made the 9-mile loop (counter-clockwise, ascending the steeper waterfall trail first, running along the ridge, and then descending the Greenleaf / Old Bridle Path trail), including a mile or so along the ridge in the alpine zone to Mt. Lafayette’s 5,249′ summit (2 hours, 58 minutes).
