Presidential Traverse

Northern Presidential Range

We completed the Presidential Traverse, approximately 19.5 mi, in 13:37. We spotted a car at Highland Center the previous evening.  We started at 5:15am at Appalachia TH and finished at 6:52pm at Highland Center. We filled up on water at Madison Hut, Washington Observatory, and Lake of the Clouds Hut. We each carried 3-4 sandwiches along with a variety of granola bars, trail mix, and fruit; this was more than sufficient. Weather was spotty; sunny in the morning and cloudy/stormy in the afternoon. We got caught in a hailstorm and a rainstorm.
