A Hike to North and Middle Tripyramids

After a busy week at work I was feeling pretty tired but wanted to get a hike in on what was to be the best weather day of the weekend. Today's hike would start on the Kancamagus Highway and follow the Pine Bend Brook Trail to North Tripyramid (4,180') and across the Mount Tripyramid Trail to Middle Tripyramid (4,140').

Zealand and The Bonds Beyond

Up at 3:00 am, out the door at 3:50 for a Bond traverse. I'd be joining up with fellow hikers Denise, completing her 48 4,000 footers today and Jill, a veteran Bonds climber having made several trips to these summits and wanting to hike them again. We delayed our trip one day to await the spectacular weather that was forecast for today. Turned out to be a great decision!

The Long Hike to Owl's Head

Today's hike would take me deep into the Pemigewasset Wilderness. The weather was looking good except for some possible afternoon showers. This would be another hike with fellow hiker Denise who would be completing #45 of the 4,000 footers. The plan for this hike would take us along Lincoln Woods Trail to Franconia Brook Trail turning onto Lincoln Brook Trail and finally the climb to the summit up the slide known as the Owl's Head Path.
