    I did this route to avoid high water crossings in the past. It was a one of the tougher solo day hikes that I did, but so worth it...

    There are no named trails that I know of.


    Yes. There is an "anglers path" (directions in Pond & Lakes of the White Mountains by Steve Smith) connecting the two. And a possible path from Upper...

    Thanks to all for the positive posts. I appreciate it.

    For years, I've read about others here working through knee pain, finding out it was arthritis. I just never thought it would be me -- my...

    Gotta say, I read the thread and first thought "Ahhhh, Christmas hiking! I have nothing nice to say" (oh, jealously is an evil demon!!!) But, I love the Moose (it was my first 4K), so I had to read...

    Knee Pain, Version 100.01

    Coldfeet's recent post prompted me to post this. Along the way, I thought that he had mentioned arthritis, but couldn't find that post in a search. If I'm wrong, ignore this, Dave.

    That was great day on the trail, views or no views! It was an easy decision to ignore my long holiday to-do list and go hiking instead. I’m so glad I did. Being out in the woods always gives a...

    I'm already a little disappointed with this show. It seems to be coming off as Survivor Does Everest. Tho, if it were, they’d at least have found one chick, hot or not.

    As for the Survivor...

    Thanks for posting that again, Darren. For me, it's hearing first hand accounts of others struggles that makes me think about what I'm doing.

    Had I heard this before I headed out with a head cold...

    Not statisical, but from a quick look, it appears the majority of deaths covered in Not Without Peril are within that range (not true winter condtions).

    Exactly.



    Yup. Probably not in the direction intended. But it was a bit of a wake up call to look at something in a different context. And that may be something that makes me rethink how I...

    I was washing my Precip in Tech Wash and treating with TX Direct. After three years, it was done. The only place the backing actually peeled was at the neck line (the new design may eliminate this...

    I've used my Precip as a winter shell (over a light weight Primaloft jacket and other layers). It works to a certain extent, but after hours of wet snow you will be soaked. And this was back when...

    It's too bad about that section washing out again -- after all the work that was done this summer you'd think it would hold together better.

    Spent a bit of time hiking up there this summer. ...

    I went part way up on Tuesday. The western (Thornton) end has been fixed. A little soft (still a little loose and wet from the rains) for a front-wheel drive, but doable.

    If so, do you feel selfish for doing it? Nope.

    Well said. That about sums up the Vose Spur "herd path".

    I wouldn't quite call it a herd path either, other than having followed animal tracks part of the way. It is more or less following...
