Seeking an Alternate Peak - Mt Adams via King Ravine - 7/23/11
With the record crowds and less trails to hold them with Tucks closed we decided to take an alternate route for Seek the Peak. That route happened to lead up a different mountain and also led to an incredible day! We wound up hiking King Ravine to Mt Adams and it was one of the most spectacular hikes we've done in the Whites so far. King Ravine is described in the guide books as "wild and beautiful" and it certainly lives up to that description. The Seek the Peak event was fantastic and it was wonderful to be able to help make this one of the most successful ones ever. It was an all around fabulous weekend with great friends. Here's the complete account of our Seek the Peak hike and the other weekend events. Links to the complete photo albums are at the end. Enjoy!
Here's a little preview...
