When you are retired every day is Saturday, and this is no exception. I am sitting in our camper up in the White Mountains enjoying a thunderous and continuous rain over a cup of coffee, staring at my new found friend. Unlike our tenting neighbors, we are dry. And unlike our trip to Vermont, where… Read More New Hampshire – Aug 2016
Tuckerman’s Ravine is epic. Whether you hike up there for spring skiing, on your way to the summit of Mount Washington, or whatever else may be your goal, it is clearly a stunning area. Some in our group made it to Ho Jo’s, some to the summit (6,288 feet elevation), me to the base of… Read More Tuckerman’s Ravine – August 2014

It really had almost a prehistoric look, kind of dark and brooding, but really cool. Plenty of high-end finishes to… Read More Pinkham Notch (NH) – August 2014

Really great views of the falls –… Read More Arethusa Falls (NH) – Aug 2014

We day hiked Mount Osceola in the White Mountains, one of the 48 4,000 footers (4,340 feet); just beautiful. While the climb is popular and described as one of the easier climbs (validated by 20 Girl Scouts climbing down as we were going up), this is not what I would have described as an easy… Read More Mount Osceola (NH) – August 2014
We decided to hike some trails near Waterville Valley in the White Mountains, and found some great hiking/cross country ski trails. We hiked for about 3 miles but I am pretty sure Rosie just about doubled our distance. Gorgeous day, cool temps (low 70’s), lunch by the river…
