That view really was one of the best on the trail. I had lunch there and then
hiked on to the next shelter. Strange section of trail after Rte 112 -
definately not what the profile showed.

I stayed at the hostel in Glencliff and really screamed over Moosilauke the next
day. It was a very strange day for me, with a long lunch, a long break at the
notch and a, ah, well, shall we say "exposure" in the falls coming down the
mountain. I took a bath, not realizing that I was only 100 yards from the
parking lot.
