    I don't have anything documented, no. I'll see if I can find the gps tracks from Gaia. We did use it for some of our hikes to make sure we were where we thought we were. Mostly, we were right. :D

    Tragic ending. She picked the wrong day for a run on the ridge. It does kinda remind me of Kate's story, too. Poor weather and poor decisions make for a poor outcome.

    I didn't know her, or of her, either. So that's two people. From the articles about the event I skimmed, I assumed (there's that word) that she wasn't that fit or experienced. Just one of those...

    you can find chunks of ice in Mahoosuc notch all year. Its most decidedly cold enough. Even in mid-summer, the elevation and steep rift walls has a noticable chilling effect walking through there.

    Doesn't the AT generally follow the railroad bed to Zealand falls? When I hiked that section, I was loving the gentle grades of the trail. It felt very much like a railroad bed.

    My final 48th peak was a Flags on the 48 event one year. Couldn't see squat from the tower. Wind was howling. Climbing the tower to mount the flag was an adventure as I'm a bit leary of heights....

    With gas prices hovering around $5 and diesel over $6, it's probably a $300 day to drive up and ride an ATV around Gorham now. That's not counting hotels, and food.
