Picking up the pieces  Sucess!

After being ejected from this range last year I returned to pick up the pieces. I came up the Caps Trail and then hiked south on the AT. Lovely sunset, perfect conditions this time.

Presi Traverse  Sucess!

Climbed it 3 times it was so much fun - actually got seperated from partner in 60 mph winds and 30' of visibility. Nasty weather and no views.

Via Gulfside to Loop  Sucess!

Bagged it with Flanders as the seventh peak of our south to north Presidential Traverse. No visibility, in fact, we got separated on the summit and lost each other for the rest of the afternoon. We were about 25 feet from each other at the time. Winds and rain, fog and gloom.

Gulfside to Loop  Sucess!

120 miles of visibility...only the second day this year! In talking to locals they said that many of them had been up in the area multiple times and NEVER had a day like that. From Washington down across Clay and on to Jefferson. I think Jefferson was my favorite summit in the northern Presis, not sure why, just was. Great sun and weather, no complaints...after this it was on to Adams.

Great Day  Sucess!

Took the Caps Ridge Trail, which is FUN! I liked it. Just a great day weather wise. Though a bit nippy at the top. But great clear skies. One guy got me laughing when he comes over from Adams and goes "Gee, What lousy Weather!" We both got a good laugh out of that, as you couldn't have asked for a nicer day.

Up Castle Ravine, down Lowes Path  Sucess!

Trail-bagging trip, at end of day I had completed 3/4 of the mileage in AMC White Mtn Guide. But I'd left too many of the worst-sounding ones, and never finished.

Route Climbed: up castle ridge, down caps Date Climbed: June 2002  Sucess!

Enjoyable and rough connector trail over to castle ridge from caps. Totally socked in on top. Went down caps ridge which had a couple of nice scrambling sections.

Route Climbed: Presidential Traverse Date Climbed: June 3, 2005  Sucess!

8 peaks - we missed the last one on accident - in 19.8 miles. I slept REALLY well that night!

Route Climbed: gulfside (presi traverse) Date Climbed: 10 sept 2005  Sucess!

Surprisingly, the summit was much more crowded than Madison or Adams.

Incredible views on a fantastically clear day.

Route Climbed: Caps Ridge Trail, then on to Adams Date Climbed: Sep 9 2005  Sucess!

The Northern Presidential range is just a spectacular place. The Great Gulf Wilderness is one of the most beautiful places I know in ths country. And to combine all of the views and all of the hiking on a day without clouds or limits to visibility, and temps in the 40s and 50s, well, it really doesn't get any better than that!

We did Caps Ridge Trail in under two hours. Ample parking. By chance we ran into Andy, then expanded our route to Adams and down Lowe's Path (and with Andy's help and this dynamic car spotting got back to our wheels).
