Goodbye NH

on 23 July 2009

Today was our last full day in New Hampshire as we did a 20 mile
slackpack from Pinkham Notch to Gorham, NH. The Whites have been
challenging but amazing. The last 2 days were cloudy so there weren't
any views but we got amazing above-treeline sights earlier in the
week. In this part of the country any elevation above ~4,400 ft is
bare rock because the wind and cold make it hard for trees to live.
Most of the Whites are like this and I definitely plan on coming back
again to hike more...it's ansolutely amazing here. Tomorrow when we
hit Maine, we will only have 281 miles left!

281 to go! Holy cow! Impressive. It must feel good to nearly be done. I'm glad you're getting such beautiful views. It's currently 8:00am here in Ithaca - you've already been hiking for 4 hours today on your 31 mile slackpack! Go get it!

For 281 miles to get an exclamation mark just shows how much you have done. Wonderful!
