Saturday July 16, 2016 Mount Lafayette by Phyllis RubensteinTwo of us hiked Mount Lafayette on a day which had a bright, blue sky in the valley, and was totally fogged in with some rain on the ridgeline. We decided not to do a car spot and hike the planned loop. Instead we did an out and back on the Skookumchuck Trail, a total of 10 miles. On the ridgeline and near the summit of Lafayette, there were hordes of people. On the Skookumchuck Trail, we saw fewer than 10 in total. It was a great day in New Hampshire!
