Last weekend, we had a very short trip to the White Mountains of New Hampshire. The occasion was a friend’s wedding celebration. It was a fun time, but a hectic 24 hour trip. It’s amazing what you can squeeze in when you have the energy.


On the way to the “wedding” in Milan, New Hampshire, we had lunch at the Putney Co-Op and we stopped at the visitor center in Wells River, Vermont. On Sunday morning, we headed for Pinkham Notch. We stopped to drop Debbie off at the Great Gulf Wilderness trailhead. During a 90 minute run, she took the Great Gulf Trail over to the notch.

The kids and I stopped briefly on Rt. 16 to check out the 24 Hours of Great Glen mountain bike race. It was a damp morning and the riders had gone all night. We took a few photos and were on our way again. We parked at the AMC Pinkham Notch Visitor Center and briefly stopped inside. We have stayed at AMC’s Joe Dodge Lodge many times. The kids and I hiked up the Tuckerman Ravine Trail for about 1.5 miles. We went past the Crystal Cascade, but stopped off for a snack on our way back.


Debbie met us on our way down the trail. We headed back to the van and drove to North Conway for lunch at Flatbread. After lunch, we headed south and west, taking the Kancamagus Highway across the southern Whites. We stopped at Otter Rocks to swim. After the break, we piled into the van again and headed home.


We had dinner in Northampton with Debbie’s brother and parents, who were spending the day together in western Massachusetts. We got home late on Sunday night. Another adventure complete.

Not a bad way to cap the weekend. @patriots #nepatriots #patsgame #patriots 🏈 Two days of #crawfordnotch views sandwiched with @appalachianmountainclub meeting. Cycling on Rt. 302, #trailrunning on the Crawford Path, and Mount Willard. #newhampshire 🚴🏽🏃🏻⛰ Sites and sounds from Day 2 @gpgloucester #gpgloucester The fog was burning off by the end of the Cub Juniors 9-14 year old race.

#horstspikes #cyclocross #lifedeathcyclocross #horstengineering #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #madeinconnecticut #madeinnewengland #madeinusa 🇺🇸 It was great to see so many friends at today’s Western #Massachusetts Athletic Club Monroe (Dunbar Brook) Trail Race. We all ran the 2-Miler. We couldn’t stay long after the finish, but we did see Kelsey Allen win overall in the 10.5 Mile main event. Hooray! #trailrunning 🏃🏻 Before and after the Western #Massachusetts Athletic Club’s Monroe (Dunbar Brook) Trail Race in the #Berkshires I rode (very wet) over from Savoy Mountain State Forest where we camped last night. On the ride along the #DeerfieldRiver I checked out #ZoarGap and then we walked down to the river to see the Tooth. Sadly, the kayakers had already passed through. The foliage turned overnight. #trailrunning #cycling 🚴🏽🏃🏻⛰ #Cyclocross racing in the morning and downhill #mountainbiking @thundermountainbikepark in the afternoon. We got in two late afternoon runs on rental bikes and are pumped to return for more fun in the future. #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #thundermountainbikepark #berkshireeast 🚵‍♀️⛰ 30 kids in the 9-12 year old Race at the #mansfieldhollow #Cyclocross That’s just awesome! @the_ccap #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #crossspikes #crossisboss This image was from pregame, but approaching halftime @uconnfootball there aren’t many more fans than you see here. 35 (Memphis ) to 21 (UCONN) is a lot of points in 30 minutes of #football #uconn This morning I got to hear Warren Rustand, inspirational entrepreneur and fellow @ypoglobal member, speak at a #ypo Connecticut River Valley Chapter meeting. It was fitting that the event was @riverfrontrecapture and literally ON the #connecticutriver I walked from @horsteng via my favorite train bridge. The 10 minute trip back to the plant was ample time to reflect on the #leadership lessons that he shared with our group. @garyrome and I decided that we should memorialize our time with this dedicated athlete, by requesting that he join our photo. #horstengineering #business
