Jun 8, 2008 - Mount Lafayette, NH

The climb up Mount Lafayette involves a combination of Falling Waters Trail, Franconia Ridge, and Greenleaf Trail, and is apparently one of New England’s most dramatic hikes. From our Mt Washington climb, we'd learned to start early. This time, we left home by 6:30 AM and started the hike at around 9:00 AM. We started on the Falling Waters Trail. This trail crisscrosses Walker Brook and Dry Brook ascending rock staircases. On our very first sighting of the brook we were quite excited and decided to hike through the brook (along it) for a...

We spent 4 days hiking and just driving around amongst the most incredible fall colours we...

And, only $52 for the night....

Sep 24, 2005 - I am addicted to football

I just walked across the campground in the dark with my laptop held before me like a votive offering to the football gods - trying to get a decent line of sight to the wireless modem to pick up the football game feed (think of the cell commercial where the guy keeps saying "Can you hear me now?" ad nasuem - I lost the feed just after Tony Tompkins had run back a kick-off for a touchdown. Just after BC scored a touchdown to tie the game at 20. It just figures that I miss the home game where he runs one back for a touchdown. If they win, I...
