Franconia Bike Path

I had to make a trip to Plymouth, NH today and decided to throw my bike in the back of the truck. Thought I might take a short ride on the Franconia Bike Path. This is a paved bike trail that runs from The Flume parking lot up past Cannon Mountain. The secret is to pedal north so that you can "coast" back down to where you parked.

Mount Eisenhower via Edmands Path

We've had a great run of fine weather here in the Northeast and today was no exception. So my little hiking buddy and I decided to add another 4,000 footer to our list. We ascended Mount Eisenhower (4,760 ft.) on the Edmands Path. This is a great hiking trail with an easy, moderate grade that leads to a Presidential summit offering fantastic views. There were many photos to be taken so enjoy!

Boott Spur to Boott Spur Link

The weather forecast called for a beautiful day, temps in the 70's and plenty of sun. It turned out to be just that! After a couple of lazy weekends and a wrenched back this past Friday I was ready to hit the hiking trail. The first pair of hikers I was following were carrying skis!? I asked them if they knew there wasn't much snow left, they seemed to think there was enough. That's a lot of work for some very short-lived "pleasure". I didn't realize how little snow there was until I gained some elevation and got a good look into Tuckerman Ravine.
