Up to the White Mtns, up the Ravine Road to the Dartmouth Lodge, then up the Gorge Brook Trail to the Moosilauke summit, then down Gleencliff and Snapper, back to the Road. No other hikers except a party in the distance at the summit. Nice day with temperatures in the 30s.  Full report here.

Franconia Ridge, 2011 Nov 19

We hiked up Falling Waters, across Franconia Ridge from Little Haystack to Lafayette, and then down Old Bridle Path. We took 8 hours, well above book time. Always a fun hike! My last time up here was in April when the snow was deep. Only a dusting today.  Here’s a full report.

Galehead Mtn + South Twin

Steve Smith and Fred Knight made a day of the gorgeous weather on Saturday with a hike up the Gale River Trail to Galehead Mtn, and an extension to South Twin. Wanting some views of Franconia and the Presidentials, we added South Twin (and another 1200′ of elevation) for spectacular views of snow-covered peaks west and east. We returned back to the car by sunset as the 3/4 moon was rising. A thoroughly fun day.
