Cannon Mt Via Kinsman Ridge Trail

Benny, Jonah Tower, Steve Bussolari, Fred Knight, 2011 Dec 26

Cannon Mt startThree of us, Jonah, Fred, and Benny, accepted Steve’s invitation for a Boxing Day hike. Although Squam Range was put forward, Cannon Mt won due to a scolding from Charlie Abert that required reaching 4000′. It was Benny’s first peak. Less wind and more clouds than expected. A gorgeous new snow of up to ~6″. It was a short hike (for Benny’s sake) and we arrived home before dark.  Full report.

Mt Monroe and Mt Washington via Ammonoosuc Trail

Kris Cyr and Fred Knight, 2011 Dec 17

We expected a strenuous hike and cold with clearing skies and light wind. We got a workout and the cold temperatures, but there were only a couple moments of the sun breaking through on Mt Washington and significant breeze atop Mt Monroe.  Full report.

Early start for 6+-hour hike, slightly over book time for the 8-mile hike with 2900′ rise. All participants cooperated to make it an enjoyable day. Benny, the golden retriever, was on his first outing; master Jonah played him well.  Report and pictures here.
