    Beautifully said. Thank you. I come down on the side of accepting what's been put in place, but I love your expression of the wild ideal.

    There've got to be some who support both huts and Cog Hotel and some who oppose both, no? Maybe an overgeneralization?

    For me, at least, I don't like the idea of putting another hotel up there...

    Where do you draw the line? Just develop it until there's sprawl? Spread over to Bigelow Lawn and Franklin? Monticello Lawn? I'm not saying shut down the Cog or buy it out, but how much is too much?

    Right, that's the problem. Most ppl I run into hiking abide by the ROW going to those ascending, but a good number are not aware of it.

    Jewell/Gulfside/Trinity Heights Connector is nice on a good weather day, and relatively easy because its grade seldom varies from the average ~14% for the route. In the first mile or two it dips in a...

    It also offers, imo, a better angle on the high Franconias than Liberty, while Liberty has the prettier summits (both having a double summit, with the higher of each being inward with respect to the...

    You'll be pretty close to Yellowstone, no? That would be a temptation I'd slake.

    That was my thinking. Would be fine for descent on a nice summer night. Especially with nice moonlight. Wouldn't want to contend with auto traffic in the daytime, for their sake or mine!

    Do the Auto Road folks ever stop people descending on foot, particularly in summer at night, via the road?

    Um, bias? Ever consider that he guides for the AMC in part because he believes in its mission? That's not bias, per se, I'd suggest, it's conviction and commitment. Would be great if we all formed...

    I saw one drinking a pina colada at Trader Vic's. Its quills were perfect.

    Seriously, I've run into three on trail, all in Mass. One in a tree on the MM in the Holyoke Range, one in another on the...

    I should say so! Interesting what Dennis points out about the CT's official status in the eyes of the WMNF. I guess one must take care not to step on Waumbek's or Cabot's proper summit in a...

    You'll get it one day, Amy, when it's ready for you. Funny thing how some mountains make you wait, and it's different mountains for each of us. I tried Washington twice before "sneaking up on it,"...

    Hear, hear! The huts can serve as a backstop for those of us less conditioned than we'd like and as a capability extender. There's little that's both human and ideal. The AMC offers decent services...

    For sure. You'd like to think that a rule of common sense would apply, but one person's common sense often is the next's nonsense.

    It does look like it catches the Starr King Trail, followed by Kilkenny Ridge and so would traverse Waumbek and Cabot, also catching Iso on the Davis Path, no?

    Anyhow, seems like a cool outing.

    Chocorua is particularly beautiful from the Ike/Pierce direction, its summit sticking up like an index finger. I had hoped to enjoy the view of it across Chocorua Lake in Fall '15 when I drove past,...

    What an adventure! Sounds like the CT could be the northern end of what I envision as an expansion of the New England Trail to the Canadian border. I see it continuing north from the Mass/NH border,...
