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.

Livingston Family firefighters. πŸ”₯ πŸ‘©β€πŸš’ πŸš’ When @trailrunningmom β€œsmoked” the obstacle course AND added some push-ups for good measure, the Chief pulled out his business card and made a pitch for her to join the squad. I thought I was the competitive one, but she can turn anything into a competition! The kids had a blast too at family day.
