They Are My Own: A brief look back at bagging New Hampshire’s 48 4,000 footers.

For the last 3 years, I’ve been hiking in New Hampshire’s White Mountains when I could get time away. Specifically, I’ve been going after the list of 48 4,000 footers. I’m guessing that was 400+ miles of walking in the mountains. At long last, I completed the list, and have applied to be a member […]

Gaiters vs. Crampons in an Epic Battle: Osceola + East Osceola via Greeley Ponds Trail 02/15/2010

Today, I hiked the 7.6 mile round trip up East Osceola and Osceola peaks via Greeley Ponds and Osceola trails from the trailhead off the Kancamagus Highway.  The first 1.3 miles is a gentle grade up Greeley Ponds trail.  All the stream crossings were simple – no trouble when the water is frozen.  At 1.3 […]
