Yes, the water was warm-ish. The air yesterday morning was 45 degrees - this morning it warmed up a lot to 57 degrees. Great skiing this morning.

I guess that's better than beating yourself up on the afternoon chop! Do you wear a wet suit?

Hawk,

Great news. We will look for a trip report and pictures. Glad you did not get caught in one of the thunderstorms we have been having every day.

It is Sunday evening and my daughter and I are driving back to NC. The rain and traffic are so bad we headed off the Maine turnpike and have cut across southern Maine and NH heading for I-495. It looks like we will have rain to NYC at least. Might be a slow trip tonight.

Charlie

These two photos are of people capturing a photo for a sport or hobby called Geocaching. (http://www.geocaching.com/about/) Briefly, you find hidden caches using GPS coordinates. In this case, it's called a webcam cache. For us with younger kids, it's a great way to get them more involved in hiking. For them, it's hiking with a purpose. Lot's of fun for any age!

and Saturday it was very busy up there , we came across the alpine garden trail to lion head trail and started to see a lot of people coming up lion head .we went out to the lions head and looked down tucks and it looked like little ants waking in line .there is still a little snow by the water falls .there was a line of people going up at that part .then we went to tucks ,tucks crossover and southside trail and looked up the tucks to the summit and there was wall to wall people going up so we went southside to Crawford path to the top . that was a nice hike a lot of people coming down to the lakes .
i need to get in shape a little more .thanks to the other EDU trip people they went at a pace that was a little better for me .it was good to stop and have our hike guide Peter and Danna from the obs discovery center to give us a long hike with a lot of history about the surrounding mountains and the trails we were on [peter is like an Encyclopædia of the whites.

more to come about the trip later

Nice photos Charlie, I bet that was an awesome trip. Looking forward to my next time up there!

Doing an Edutrip sounds like such a great idea. Being up there for sunset and sunrise with good visibility would be awesome.

Steve M

Another way to get in a sunrise and/or sunset would be to stay the night at Lakes of the Clouds. It's also cheaper but not as educational.

yes it would be cheaper but our host Peter Crane was full of information about the whites .and you will miss out on all that fine food they have up there made by the volunteers.

That's true, who could put a price tag on that? Hopefully I will be called to volunteer for a week next year, then I will get an education, see the sunrise and sunset and get to enjoy my own good cookin!:D

Charlie
