Hiking Mt. Lafayette

For Mike's birthday we hike part of the Franconia Ridgeline Trail in the White Mountains. The trail we hiked is about nine miles long and goes along the treesless ridgeline over three 4,000 ft peaks - Little Haystack, Lincoln and Lafayette.

The cairn on Little Haystack is reflective of the shape of the peaks Mt Flume and Mt Liberty in the distance. 

This is the view of Mt Lafayette from the top of Mt Lincoln. It's a lot further away than it may appear!

Here you can see the ridgeline which we hiked with Lafayette, Lincoln and Little Haystack from left to right.
