Solo, Rainy Hike to the Hancocks

I had a vigorous hike to the two Hancock peaks on a rainy day at the peak of colors. Full report is here.

Monadnock: Mel, Eric, and Fred

We took an afternoon hike on a gorgeous day that was cool at the top where we joined a horde of others. Full report is here.

Report

mapI took a one-day hike to Mt Washington, up via the Ammonoosuk Ravine Trail and down via Gulfside and Jewell Trails. I did Mt Monroe on the way up. Since Kris Cyr and I did this same route last Dec (except getting lost in the clouds between Lakes of the Clouds and the Mt Wash summit), I added some comparison shots from Dec 2011. Dec’s hike took 8.5 hours; this one was faster, just under 7 hours.
