Mount Tecumseh

On the drive to the trailhead this morning we were in and out of the fog. The hike for today would be another 4,000 footer, Mount Tecumseh (4,003') via the Mount Tecumseh Trail from the Waterville Valley Ski area. This is the shortest mountain on the AMC 4,000 footer list.

Hike to Carter Dome via Mount Hight

A cold front last night brought snow to the high peaks. Cold, crisp and clear was the forecast for today. As we set out for the trailhead temps were in the 20's - wind chill was colder! Today's hike would take us up the 19 Mile Brook Trail to Mount Hight via the Carter Dome Trail then over to Carter Dome along the Carter-Moriah Trail and down to Carter Notch Hut. The return trip to the trailhead would be down the 19 Mile Brook Trail. This hike was 10.4 miles long and included a 4,000 footer, Carter Dome (4,832').

Hiking the Moats

Driving to the trailhead through Pinkham Notch I caught an occasional glimpse of white on the highest peaks, snow from last night's passing cold front. The high summits remained in the clouds all day. Today's hike would take me up to the Moats, a beautiful set of mountains that can be seen from North Conway, NH.
