    I appreciate your detailed description of the traverse of the Weeks since that's the one section up there I don't have on my resume. I did the Terrace loop a few years ago and while hardly...

    Yes, to quote Ed Viesturs, "Getting to the summit is optional. Getting down is mandatory."

    Two things can be true at the same time. Cars lining the roadside in the notch is definitely not a pretty sight, but this solution is also undeniably ugly. The parking problem seems to be limited to...

    While safety is certainly the #1 priority, this system of posts and ropes and now sandbags is going to seriously impact the aesthetics of the very scenic view one gets driving through the notch.

    I have only ever been on one group hike. It was in Australia over 40 years ago. I was young and fit and reasonably well prepared, but not at the level I would be today. At least I had the right gear,...

    These photos are taken from the south from the general vicinity of Noon Peak. You would expect South Tripyramid to appear slightly higher than Middle because it is closer to the photographer. But it...

    The summit of Guyot on the Bondcliff Trail appears higher than the designated summit on the Twinway. It also looks and feels more like a "summit."
    Most if not all of these examples are probably...

    Great accomplishment! Both the 100 and this particular hike. And to echo iAmKrzys, I loved the very colorful imagery of your report. A long day's journey into night but a very rewarding one.

    Cheaha Mt. in Alabama. The stone tower was a CCC project. I had a photo of underwhelming Woodall, (806 feet)but I can't locate it. It's more of a hill than a mountain. Just a turnaround at a cell...

    I had meant to ask if people here know Pam Bales or know if she ever posts on VFTT. I fear that we have not done justice to her heroic effort on that hike. She has my utmost respect and admiration.

    Thanks to all for the feedback. To clarify for Tom R, I am aware that Kate Matrosova and Ty Gagne's book about her were discussed in detail and at length on VFTT. I'm sure I probably chimed in....

    Not Your Typical Hike

    A friend sent me this great story written by Ty Gagne (Where You'll Find Me, The Kate Matrosova story). I don't recall seeing this posted on VFTT but if you've already covered it here, I apologize...

    Oh boy, nothing like a deferred Sox/Yanks tiff! What part of New England are you from TEO? SW Connecticut? Ok, some serious Flash Gordon history. The nickname alone should put him in Hall of Fame...

    The Baldface loop, the Percy Peaks, and Crawford/Stairs are probably my favorite 3K hikes in NH thus far.
    Howker Ridge Trail (a less traveled alternate route up Madison) is a real gem, even if you...

    Congrats on that achievement. 2:45 to summit Madison in winter is pretty cool in my book. I would barely be on Madison in summer and you guys are on Adams in winter. I think I've done about 90% of...

    Since all of my hiking trips in NH have occurred between July and September, I guess I can only claim a "Summer 48".
    No, hold on, it looks like I did Carrigain on September 23 so I can't even claim...

    Brutus was brutal. Ask Caesar. The other Brutus was pretty cool. I guess you knew him. Wasn't he one of the first dogs to do the Winter 48? Nobody else I know has a trail named after them.

    If he's a reincarnated climber, then he must have been a bad boy. Bad karma results in one going "backwards", often to a four-legged animal.

    Are warnings like this normal or does this reflect the increasing amount of people requiring rescue under conditions in which it should be obvious to stay home? I don't think I've ever seen this...

    "I always turn around to observe the reverse view whenever I come across an intersection or other location of note." Nessmuk

    Possibly the best piece of advice contained in this entire thread.

    Anne (with an e) Shirley would probably be just as upset that you spelled her name incorrectly:rolleyes:

    Perhaps to some people fame is more important than safety or dare I say, than common sense. I just saw this story and shook my head.
