    I was just thinking night before last to catch up with him for a hike. Only thing is he always wanted to get to the summit, while I wanted to explore off-trail away from summits.

    Monadnock is interesting in that it's visitors are such a broad group of people magnified with the high use. I really came to appreciate the diversity of hiker types there, one being many who...
