great hike  Sucess!

I hiked this with my friend Dan. The Gorge River Trail was fun (it had rained the day before so it was slippery and a little more challenging). It was foggy and misty at the top, so we couldn't see anything. I'll have to do it again on a clear day.

Unbelievable Hike  Sucess!

Hiked the Gorge River Trail. Trail maintenance is outstanding. Never a bad step on the length of the trail. Summit was the best I've seen, not that I've seen hundreds, the meadow is incredible. A pleasure up and back.

The Day the Cold Snap Ended  Sucess!

On the previous night, the temp on Mt Washington was -24F with gusts over the century mark. At the trailhead on Moosilauke on my hike (11am) it had risen to about +4F to 6. At the summit it was about Zero Degrees with 50-60 mph winds, putting it in the mid-thirty's-below. Sadly, I was only above treeline for an hour, and then dropped into the ice blanketed trees as it got dark out.

Windy/Warm  Sucess!

Very warm day, but got windy up top, and also pretty poor visibility. Cleared up though on the way down, offering good views.

No Views  Sucess!

Hiked up from Route 25. What started out as a nice day was a cloudy windy viewless day once up top. Would be neat to do again on a clear day.

Mount Moosilauke  Sucess!

Climbed with South Peak via the Glencliff Trail from Glencliff. My first mountain in the Whites and in New Hampshire. Hiked it on just about a perfect day. Arrived on Moosilauke's broad grassy summit a little after noon. Amazing views in every direction. There were a lot of people hiking today but it hardly detracted from the overall experience.

Beaver Brook  Sucess!

It's a nice NH hike to Moosilauke on the Beaver Brook trail. The cascades are nice, the way up is steep, the forest is nice, and there should be good views on the top. I went on a day when the haze really limited the view. It was ridiculuos, too humid. Oh well, I still had a good time.

Hike via AT  Sucess!

Clouds were thick at the top - couldn't see a thing! It was cold and windy - I put gloves on. Fortunately there was a view from the South Peak. Nice carriage road at top!

on AT  Sucess!

Backpacked over the top and down the AT on the N side-- start of a long day. Not another soul on top.

Soon I will finish signing in to all these AT mountains...

Meet some through hikers  Sucess!

I've heard about this mountain many times but thought it wasn't "big" enough. On a whim I decided to go because it's the closest to Boston. Took the Carriage trail, sumitted, and then down the Beaver Brook. Basically a nice, easy hike, although the Beaver Brook trail was steep. Had fantastic weather and great views. Spent the night at the Beaver Brook shelter. Met 3 through hikers on their way to Katadin, and shared some of my food with them. We had an absolutely beautiful dawn as we looked down into the vally that was covered with fog. The wind was nearly still so the fog just quietly shrouded everything below and was very still and quite. Hard to describe the feeling of peace when looking down on that unless you've been there.

Moosilauke Lotstalikee  Sucess!

A beautiful day. A fun semi-scramble up Gorge Brook and down the carriage road.

My first summit above treeline  Sucess!

This was part of my Appalachian Trail thru-hike, and most notably the first time in my life I had ever been above tree-line.
