  • Mount Moosilauke – Our First Hike of the Season


    Saturday, July 22, 2000 We have been planning to climb Mount Moosilauke for some time now and this weekend seemed to offer us the best time with which to accomplish this goal. The Weather Channel had been threatening showers most of the day, yet we awoke to a sun filled morning with a slight breeze from the southwest. We hurried about the kitchen preparing breakfast and making sandwiches for our lunch on the summit before heading north on route 93 to Nort...

  • Mount Washington or Bust


    Saturday, July 29, 2000 We arrived at the cog railway parking area around 7:00 am. There were a few people milling about either waiting for the train to start running or to enjoy a nice morning hike. We were not sure where the Jewell Trail started so Susan asked one of the Cog railway workers to direct us to the trailhead. He motioned to a bridge just across the tracks, which lead up to Mount Clay. Our friend Ron was not a seasoned hiker, so we started o...

  • Franconia Ridge Loop, Franconia, NH


    Date: March 4, 2000 Trails: Franconia Ridge Loop: Old Bridal, Greenleaf, F-Ridge & Falling Waters View images from this hike!

  • Presidential Dayhike Traverse


    Back in July of this year my hiking partner and I set out on a trip we had planned for eight weeks. It seemed simple enough at first. To hike the presidential range in New Hampshire in one day, the hard way, heading north from Crawford Notch, and to arrive at the terminus at the Appalachia lot near Randolph some twenty two miles or so away. We used two cars and parked one at each trailhead. Mount Washington, our "rockpile", lies almost perfectly in the mid...

  • Race Brook Falls/Mount Race Appalachian Trail

Once through Litchfield, it was apparent that winter had arrived in the Northwest hills of Connecticut. We arrived at the trailhead (~700 feet) on Route 41 in Massachusetts a little before 10:00 AM. The Race Brook Trail ...
