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 got my first #cyclocross ride of the year in too! #yogini #yogi #shavasana Sightseeing on my second favorite road in #Connecticut #grassyhill #cycling #bicycle #sevencycles #horstengineering Camp was swell! @thecubscouts @boyscoutsofamerica #cubscouts #boyscouts #junenorcrosswebster I visited the new HQ of the @appalachianmountainclub that is under construction at 10 City Square in #Charlestown I had to ride by the #BunkerHill Monument at the end of the #FreedomTrail #Boston #sevencycles First time at the People's Forest Trail Race since 2011. This first image is the look of a dejected man who lost 25 minutes with a wrong turn on a big descent. That's costly in an 11 kilometer race. Even worse is that @trailrunningmom is the one who led him (and two other runners) off course! They survived. It was a nice day on the #FarmingtonRiver. #trailrunning #teamhorstsports #shenipsitstriders 🏃🏻⛰🏆
