    Very sweet. Is that mt marcy? Teaching your son about hiking and when he goes with you, and then bags the big stuff is priceless. Matt, 10 now has been hiking the last 5 years of his life, is part of the 4000 footers club, and has bagged 10 of them in new hampshire. He descended a 50 chimney and then ascended it (out &back;) like it was nothing. He getting better than me! Its a blessing really, and when your kids are ready, it will be a fine memorable moment. Theres just something about spending time in the back country, almost spiritual. Be well!


    Pete....this was just one of those days the axe gets put away %-P

    Yes, views were really nice on this clear cold day. I think I could see your pallet storage system from there! :lol:

    that was the carter moriah trail couple years back. think we did carter dome and a couple others. it was tough cuz of the time of year. it was may and lots of blow down and melting snow made it virtually impossible to make time. falling through 4 5 feet of snow. made for a tuff trip. we ended early cuz it wasnt worth the time. but still had a good time.

    heres some from the whites last year. we did the jewel trail up to mt washington then that wasnt enough so we climbed back up the other side on the last day we were there and did tuckermans. the first day it was blowing 80 at the top and one min u couldnt see a foot in front of u the next was clear as day. The whites are very unforgiving. and i think a lot tougher hiking then the adks.
