Hi Everyone,

I headed up to the Bartlett area this past weekend and hit Mount Stanton and Mount Pickering. My main motivation to get up there was to get good views of Iron Mountain (some of you may have seen my history on this mountain that I recently posted (http://www.mountwashington.org/forums/showthread.php?7236-Historical-Post-on-Iron-Mountain)). I certainly got good views of Iron Mountain, Kearsarge North, the Doubleheads, The Crippies and more.

My detailed trip report can be viewed on my blog: http://livefreeandhikenh.blogspot.com/2011/11/some-nice-views-on-mount-stanton-and.html Please stop by if you have a moment.

Here are some of my favorite pics from the hike:
