17 June 2014 (Day 105) – I will enter the White Mountains of New Hampshire in earnest tomorrow. The first mountain in the chain is a doozy. Second only to Mt Katahdin in length and steepness of climb, Mt Moosilauke ascends 3800 feet in 5.5 miles and descends in only 4 miles. The descent is punctuated by steps cut in the granite and rebar handholds. The peak is above tree line. I look forward to the challenge and will post pictured soon.
The last 2 days have been perfect for hiking. Clear trail and beautiful vistas over the Green Mountains.
