    Grinnell Glacier Trail - August 13, 2023

    Our family did that trail in July 2000. Your video prompted me to pull out our many photos. I was struck by how little snow there was now compared to then. Nice to see Salamander Glacier still exists! Of the many National Parks we have been to, Glacier was my absolute favorite, the sweeping...

    Parking Fees at Franconia Notch State Park?

    I absolutely support the fees, particularly at Lonesome Lake where I believe overnighters at the hut occupy so many of the spaces. Lonesome Lake is a wonderful family hike and I have gone with my children and grandchildren in all seasons. For the last 2 summers this has been impossible...

    Wrong turn on Jefferson Notch Road Twice our GPS has led us to dirt roads, once in NH, once in VT. Both times there were paved road options.

    Lafayette Place Parking and Shuttle

    And if you look carefully at ChrisB's pic, so many signs, cones, and ropes! It's a shame the parkway is disfigured.

    Franconia Notch parking survey

    Looks like the NH DOT is looking into doing something about parking on the shoulders of I 93 in the notch. They're looking ahead to summer 2018. Here is a link to the survey they are doing: I have parked on the shoulder on occasion, and honestly, I never felt it to be...

    Shenandoah National Park

    We went to Shenandoah NP in Sept 2013 and were staying at the Skyland Lodge when the National Parks were shut down. Got up in the morning and found a notice taped tour door basically saying "get out ASAP". Before our abrupt departure, we had done Stonyman the night before, a nice walk with...

    Greeley Ponds via Waterville Valley Hike - 01/02/2015

    Interesting that the beginning of the trail is so wide. When we saw it last fall, I assumed it was done that way for x-c skiing, that it would be tracked like Livermore. But you indicate, it's probably not skiable. Are there new maps available? Thanks for the report. The ponds have always...

    Flooding damage at the Basin?

    We drove back to MA from North Conway yesterday and stopped to see the high water on the Basin Cascades Trail. Couldn't believe the damage at the Basin (forgive my computer skills - I think they will enlarge if you click on them) This is the main Basin itself. Note the log through the...
