Presidential Traverse (August 2018)

Back in August we helped to organize a traverse of the Presidential Range in New Hampshire.  This above treeline hike is a little over 30 miles long, so we decided to take two days and stay at the AMC Lake of the Clouds hut overnight.  We were joined by Bill, Kim, Don, Anne, Mike and Denise.

We started at 5am from the northern trailhead for Mt Madison (by headlight), and took in Mts Adams, Jefferson, and Washington on the first day.  We arrived at the hut very tired and with only about a minute to spare before dinner was served!  On the second day we enjoyed clear views from the summits of Mts Munro, Pierce and Jackson.  Our feet were very sore by the time we got back to the car at the AMC Highland Center in Crawford Notch.

August Visit from the Hancocks

Its time to catch up and blog on some activities from the summer......

Back in August we were listed by cousin Michael Hancock and his family (Margaret, Alex & Charlotte).  It was a warm weekend, so we explored the local sites and spent a nice afternoon at the beach in Watch Hill.  The kids enjoyed swimming, but it was a bit too cold for the adults!

Fall Colors

A great weekend for autumn colors in New England. Glad we got up early for a walk.
