View Full Version : Shortened day Trip Recommendations

Hello all. Heading to Gorham tonight for a long weekend (Sat, Sun and Mon). We will be getting in late tonight and my friend needs to rent some equipment in Conway at IME Saturday morning. IME opens at 8:30 which means I don't expect to get to the Visitor Center until 9:30 at the earliest. Since I have a shortened day what do you think I should do. My goal is to summit some peaks this weekend but realize only having 9 hours of usable light may hamper that. My 2 friends and I are well prepared for nasty weather and are pretty experienced hikers and backpackers. Any ideas. Also the Inferno is Saturday. That remains my fall back plan. If nothing else we'll go check out the scene at the bowl then go for a long hike through some of the trails.

On a side note, my Coolpix broke this week so it looks like Iphone pics will be the best I can do. Bummer.

If the weather is reasonable we will be back in the Bowl for the Inferno. Hmmm, time to check out the forecast.

If you've not seen the Inferno before, it really is very cool!
