The local news reported that a Doug Johnson of Illinois was carried down off of Mt Madison in the Whites yesterday. He had down a option of the trail last year and had restarted in April.

They reported that he had knee problems and had been brought down to Madison Springs Hut to rest but they ended up carrying him down.

Probably a good thing as the walk down off of Madsion to the Great gulf is one long down hill with lots of rock hopping, a resuce along there would have taken a lot more effort. What probably didnt help was that the weather pattern shifted yesterday and it got hot and humid real quick.

I sure agree with you, the AT north of Mt Madison is one looong downhill walk.
