Hi All, thought I should update our latest adventure in the White mountains of NH. This time, it was warm weather and no snow shoes/crampons! I am closing in on completing the list of 48 4000’ers….
We bagged 5 peaks last weekend; the Willey range which consists of Mts Willey-Field-Tom (~ 9 mile loop) on day 1 and Mts Zealand and Hale on day 2 (~ 14 mile loop). Beautiful conditions day 1, very clear, a bit hot (mid 70’s) a little cloudy and cooler on day 2 with showers to finish off the day. We got down and back to the truck before thunder storms. We saw both moose and beaver on this trip, so that was cool!
The TC made a great basecamp providing cold beer and hot showers out in the wilderness after some great hiking. Campground was Zealand NF site.
Enjoy,
Bill

Looks like a fun and tiring weekend. Love the views.

Figure this is 48 peaks over 4,000 ft in elevation on the east coast? Could you elaborate on this or even post up the list of the peaks. Sounds like a very neat goal.

Wow, nice! Great to read about a fellow TCer completing the 48!

I'll make a special section in Trip Reports for this series.

Cheers,

T'was cold here too last weekend for the most part, however we've been near 100F since early Monday morning, with 4 days of 100F weather yet to go! Actually, with the 75% relative humidity here in our corner of the Northeast (unheard of in the Southwest for those that get 100F regularly, as a comparison), the real feel temperature has been and will be for some time to come an astounding 130F + ! This means illuminant death just around the corner if you are exposed for too long [emoticon]

Looks like good country for a hike. Next time in NE will have to do some.

Thanks for the post.
