    Uphill walking in Campton to Lincoln area

    I try, on most days when I am not hiking, to walk for at least an hour, and if possible two. I find it hard to raise my heart rate meaningfully on a flat road (it seems to require constant concentration) but have no difficulty doing so on an uphill road, even at a very moderate grade. Hence I do almost all of my walking on roads with some inclination.

    I have just made two posts on such walks on my blog: 1,500 Feet of Vertical on Roads in Waterville Estates and Uphill Road Walking in the Campton to Lincoln Area.

    I rarely take my camera on such walks, as they are all in the trees with minimal views. The walk to Russell Pond does, however, pass by a cleared viewpoint, I had previously posted some pictures from it. I returned to take a few more photos for the post, and for the first time notices that it was possible to just see the pointed peak of West Osceola through the leafless trees:


    Here is a view of three summits (West, Middle and Main) of Mount Osceola plus Breadtray Ridge:


    More pictures on the blog post!
