Route: Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail, Crawford Path, Tuckerman Crossover, Lawn Cutoff, Davis Path, Tuckerman Crossover, Crawford Path, Mount Monroe Loop, (Mt. Monroe), Mount Monroe Loop, Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail

My intent was to catch the sunset from Mt. Monroe and, with decent afternoon weather, it appeared to be reasonable. Arriving at the hut well ahead of schedule, I walked around some of the short trail segments between there and Tuckerman Ravine, biding my time and keeping warm in the dropping temperatures and increasing winds. While doing that, the clouds dropped and socked in the summits. Aside from some slight colors on the upper Ammo, there wasn't much to see.
