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.

#blackfriday didn’t start so badly! Great day at the #manchesterroadrace @shenipsitstriders #shenipsitstriders #silkcitystriders #teamhorstsports #thanksgiving 🏃🏻 If I always had the option to commute by train 🚂, I would take it. #multitasking 1h45m each way if uninterrupted productivity and NO driving. I even squeezed in a lap of #centralpark with Tim. 🏃🏻#manhattan #newyork Fir @john.meyerle because I neglected to post earlier: @supercross_cup This video is the Cat 4/5 Men. Great start for @the_ccap boys Nick and Johnny. #supercrosscx #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #horstengineering #crossspikes @horsteng #cyclocross #lifedeathcyclocross Another great day at the @supercross_cup The #teamhorstjuniorsquad did great on the tricky and challenging course that was left muddy by overnight rain. The wind was fierce. The Junior 9-14 year olds did battle with the Category 4/5 Women. #teamhorstsports @vittoriaseries #supercrosscx #supercrosscup #horstengineering @horsteng #crossspikes #cyclocross Good morning from the windy @supercross_cup The overnight wind destroyed many a tent. It’s supposed to get windier. The rain has turned the course to muck. It’s going to be off-camber insanity. Myles Mattern is warming up for the Juniors 9-14 year old Race and showing how it’s done. Second video is the Cat 4/5 Men. Great start for @the_ccap boys Nick and Johnny. #supercrosscx #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #horstengineering #crossspikes @horsteng #cyclocross #lifedeathcyclocross Suffering in Suffern!! @supercross_cup Day 1 #supercrosscup #supercrosscx #teamhorstsports #crossspikes #horstengineering @horsteng @vittoriaseries #teamhorstjuniorsquad ☔️🚴🏽 Another great day at the @nohocx Day was marginally warmer, but the racing was even more intense. Even the Cub Juniors were throwing down! #teamhorstjuniorsquad #teamhorstsports #crossspikes #horstengineering #cyclocross #lifedeathcyclocross #nohocx @lutzmuseum Children’s #Poetry Night. Little D wrote and recited. A welcome Friday night arts and culture moment before a (cold) weekend full of intense #cyclocross racing! #lutzmuseum 📚 🚲
