  1. Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail Video

    Finally got a good video put together of the 1st couple days of our hike:
  2. Completed Mount Washington via Ammonoosuc

    We had a perfect weather window for this trip, with 8AM temps in the 50s at the Ammonoosuc trail head and highs in the mid 60s at altitiude. The Ammonoosuc started off pleasant enough and was a very enjoyable hike to Gem Pool around the 2 mile mark. We bagged a neat geocache at the pool and ate a quick snack there.

  4. Packing for Mount Washington via the Ammonoosuc

    I've got my mess down to about 25lbs and "Marvin's" down to about 12. I ended up with most of the clothing in mine, outer layers, and the electronics. Hers has the essentials, snakage, water, and sleep. Once at Lakes of the Clouds Hut we'll redistribute to the smaller pack for a single pack day summit.

  5. Sierra Designs Discovery 30

    Got this pack as a lightish/smallish auxiliary daypack and/or for my wife (trail name TBD...but I have one in mind that's not approved) to carry as a primary. Got it on closeout from REI for around $80. I've carried it a couple of times and it's cool and comfortable. The belt is very supportive and straps have lots of adjustment. Even has an integrated pop out rain cover.
