Three 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.

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.
