    small world

    They had a celebration about 10 years ago for the 100th anniversary of that light. My wife grew up around there. We now live not far away in the same neighborhood as Conrad, (Jr & Sr) a couple...

    Nice picture of Butler Flats light

    That looks like Butler Flats, in New Bedford Harbor, right? Nice photo. Hard to believe that light has been there since 1898. The tug going by is a nice feature. Interesting note, one of the...

    Great views all around

    I am jealous, we were up top two weekends ago and could see about 20-50feet. Great photos. Nice seeing the different ridge lines. We were lucky to see the person ahead of us!

    Ok to share the trip report?

    Great summary of reality! I would like to share it with the guys in our troop. It's not unusual to need to go to Plan B, or Plan C, or Plan I (improvise). Usually, they have fun anyway, but, it also...

    Tuckerman's Saturday

    I'd echo the warning about Tuck. Folks in the Sherman Adams building Saturday also mentioned the ice on Tuckerman's. It was posted somewhere up there as well. You can see a picture of what the...
  6. Try your local AMC chapter

    The folks in the AMC are always setting up hikes, there are several chapters, try finding something on http://www.outdoors.org/

    (By the way, I know what you mean about Saturday. Washington was...

    Wow, you had a great day Sunday

    Awesome pictures. I always liked seeing that sign 2 miles out from Lakes, felt like you were getting close to "home".

    What a difference a day makes...

    sleeping bag, bivy sack, something

    Yeah, I tend to be the designated responsible adult with a bunch of youth, so my brain heads toward having a "plan B" when they get hurt. We're trying to teach them to be more personally responsible,...

    At least one sleeping bag for the group

    Only thing I'd add is that although you don't need a sleeping bag, I always make sure that one of us in the group has one. If someone gets hurt in your group and you're above treeline, you might have...

    Memorial Day

    "that we here highly resolve that these dead shall have not died in vain - that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom - that government of the people, by the people, for the...
  11. Mizpah, how about Zeeland?

    That's an interesting idea, hiking up to Mizpah with them. I don't know if it's going to be too long for some of them, but, I like the idea of reaching a hut so they can see what that's like. In the...

    Hopefully it's reasonable, but, if he's having...

    Hopefully it's reasonable, but, if he's having trouble, you can just stay on Crawford path and skip the summit loops for Eisenhower and/or Monroe to save some ups and downs. (Although they are great...

    Mt Mansfield

    In addition to the toll road mentioned to the top of Mt Mansfield in VT, you can take a Gondola ride almost to the top on Mansfield. I think that someone who can use a walker would be ok, probably...
  14. Might be good in some ways

    We had a company meeting at the Mt Washington Resort last summer at the end of June. We're all going back again this June. Last year, I took a group of folks that hadn't hiked before out to see...

    Arethusa Falls is one of our favorites too

    Awesome place for a quick lunch by the falls, we were there last fall when I snuck away from a business meeting for an afternoon hiking with the family:

    J

    How about the Jemez Mountains, at the bottom of the Rockies?
  17. How are the huts?

    Thanks for the suggestions and feedback. I'm a little embarrassed to say that I haven't stayed in a hut in about 15+ years! Before that, however, I did many nights up there from college through...
  18. Nice idea to hit the hut first, then summit

    That's a good idea, leaves open a bunch of options. If you were going directly to Lakes first, would you go up Boot Spur to Davis and Camel, or just do the same route up Tuckerman's and take the...
  19. Pinkham Notch to Highland Center hike end of June

    Hi, first post, although I have lurked and learned here for a while.

    I'm trying to plan a 3 day two night hike with another dad. We're taking our 14 year olds to the Whites for a couple nights in...
