Several hardy CSUers did the one day Presidential Traverse back in 1998. This photo is breaking out of the trees on the Howker Ridge Trail (didn't want to go the shortest and easiest way up Madison!) on Mt. Madison. It was a great day and my log book says the hike took 11 hours total with about 9.5 moving time. Wow, we were moving! Last year it took considerably longer, even though it was slightly shorter. 49F on Mt. Washington and quite windy.
A great day with a great crew. Charlie Kellog was a friggin mt. goat and most of us had to kill ourselves just to hang with him!
