Notes: Beautiful fall day. Air was crisp and fall foliage was at its peak. We started early in the morning and were the first one the trail. Parking lot was near empty. Rain in the forecast for later in the day but skies were clear for the most part. Incredible views from the Whiteface outlook. Small showers began after we summited Whiteface. Matt discovered that it was time for his EMS rain coat to be replaced as it was not keeping water out. Rain lasted only a few hours and skies opened up again. We hit Passaconway and looped back down to car. As a side note, the summit carrin for Passaconway is extremely tiny but exists. Parking lot was not packed with many “tourists” out to view the foliage.
