Alex, Sage, and I revisited classic Franconia Ridge last Sunday. This time around, we did the loop counter-clockwise (up Falling Waters Trail first, over the ridge, and down Old Bridle Path).
We had perfect weather and we were on the trails early enough to beat most of the crowds.
We get on a plane tomorrow morning and I have another trip report to write, so I'll let the photos tell the story.

It was another fine day in the woods -- and above treeline!
