White Mountain Wonder

My road trip to the White Mountains of New Hampshire was quick but fruitful. I had a chance to plan some stuff during the long drive. I was hoping to connect with several Thread Rolling Inc. customers in Vermont, but Friday is a tough day to catch people. One company, in Northern Vermont, closed at 2:30 P.M., so I ran out of time. Nevertheless, I made calls and touched base with some people that I hadn’t spoken with in a while. The weather got better as I drove north and I was treated to a great sunset after reaching Crawford Notch and AMC’s Highland Center.  

A great view right out the back door of the Highland Center.

Winter has only recently released its grip on the Whites. They got hammered this year with near record snowfall and there was still a lot of the white stuff at higher elevations. I took a short walk early on Saturday morning to the summit of Mt. Willard, a 2804 foot bump. I had a nice view of the notch and also of the mountains on the eastern side of the White Mountain National Forest

It was a pretty relaxing walk by my standards and I even did little yoga at the overlook.

I haven’t spent as much time in the White Mountains in recent  years. Several years ago, Debbie and I were up there every chance we got. Over the course of two years, we hiked the 48 4000 foot peaks in New Hampshire, often bagging six or more summits in a weekend. That is an adventure that we will forever cherish. The AMC 4000 Footer Club has welcomed hikers (and even dogs) from all walks of life and of all ages. It’s Monday and the White’s are already calling me back.

I never post about food. However, this is the second time this week that I’m posting about food. These #vegan dishes at Empress by @theprivegroup were awesome. #instavegan #singapore Everything worked out fine for @trailrunningmom After a little stress, they had her race packet and bib number at the @metasprintseries venue and she kept it upright on the bike! 🚴🏽 She was very pleased with 2nd place 🏆 in her age group at her first road #Duathlon.🏃🏻There are no mountains ⛰ and there isn’t much singletrack in #singapore but it’s still a great city for endurance sports. It looked like there were more than 1,500 athletes at the 3K/18K/3K race with LOTS of kids too. Great vibe! #triathlonsg #teamhorstsports 🇺🇸 Our kids may recognize this great Shoppes @marinabaysands feature from six years ago. I had forgotten how cool it was. #singapore #marinabaysands First time on a road bike for @trailrunningmom In advance of her first ever road duathlon @metasprintseries I taught her some tips & tricks including the do's/don'ts of shifting strategy, cornering, blocking (not), drafting (not), passing, flying mount/dismount, etc. It was fun! Even though she was on a "rental" too, I couldn't keep up on my "steed." #triathlonsg #singapore #teamhorstsports @thecheryltan #cheryltan #singapore #singapore Name those tunes. 11-year-old Feng E is making a name for himself in Asia and beyond. #guitar #fenge #singapore 🎸 @trailrunningmom led #yoga at #ypoedge #singapore 

@ypoglobal #yogini Tremendous #vegan dinner @metasingapore Without a heads up, Chef Sun and his team whipped up an amazing seven course + three “snacks” meal for @trailrunningmom and me, that was worthy of their @michelinguide star. We sat at the counter and watched every step in the process. Chef said that with advanced notice (of our diet), he “would have done better.” We appreciated his perfectionism, but it was just fine. #metarestaurant #instavegan #michelinguide #singapore
