TahawusMount Lafayette  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 5, 2007


Climbed with Little Haystack and Lincoln via the Falling Waters Trail from Franconia Notch. My final 4000' in New Hampshire and also one of the best. Definately one of the best hikes in the Northeast. We had nearly perfect weather for our final climb with views in nearly every direction for most of the hike. Lots of people at the summit but it didn't seem to detract from the experience. A fantastic finish indeed!

Backpacked in and the weather had us completely engulfed in fog. Set up camp to see how the next day would turn out. It was still foggy, but not as thick so we started up. Just as we came over the treeline the fog started to burn off. We watched it just melt away and were left with breathtaking views of the colorful fall folliage down below.

Date Climbed: Nov 3, 2007
this is my seocond time over the ridge and has to be my favorite in the Whites. Was overcast and the threat of bad weather was looming off in the distance but it held up and still had some nice views coming over the ridge.

up old bridal path and down falling waters a little icy up at the top of falling waters but nothing terrible.

MtnMagicbeautiful hike - several times  Sucess!


Wow what a beautiful peak to climb. I have climbed it, along with Lincoln, several times and always appreciate its beauty. I strongly recommend doing it in winter. The ridge in its white brilliance is a great place to be!

The trail we took up to the lodge was not crowded, but from there up things were packed. Probably saw close to one-hundred people on the mountain that day. The scenery was great, though, with the fall color changing and interesting weather.

Hiked this on a cold fall day, up the Falling Waters Trail to Little Haystack, Lincoln, and then Lafayette. There was some snow at the top, just a dusting, and it made for some amazing pictures. Great hike.

While the weather was uncooperative, the hike was outstanding! Up Falling Waters, over Little Haystack, Lincoln, and Lafayette, then down the Old Bridle Path. An absoultely great day out with my 12 year old son. Can't wait to do it again.

WoundedKneeFranconia Ridge Loop  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 18, 2007


Windy and wet, especially the 2 miles on the ridge - reminded me of Ireland. Low 40s with 40 mph wind gusts, but still a nice break from the 100 degree weather in the south. 5 and a half hour trip, including coffee at the Greenleaf Hut. I'll bet nice views were to be had from the ridge. Guess I'll have to find out another time.
