    Has anyone been on Lion's Head recently?

    Because some friends and I are planning to climb it Saturday and I was curious what the snow conditions are like now. Are the trails packed, or do we need snowshoes? Sorry for the silly question, but...

    ...I thought y'all might be interested nonetheless. My girlfriend is Norwegian, and so I went with her these past two weeks to meet her family. While I was there, I couldn't pass up the opportunity...

    I started the stopwatch at the big Tuckerman's ravine trail sign down at Pinkham Notch and stopped it there when I got back - the time includes everything. I'd like to try it in winter when it's so...

    Yes, I guess if you can't go on, you can't go on. Next time I go, I reckon I'll have to go alone, though. Annnd bring crampons. It was fine till a quarter-mile or so above treeline, then it became...

    When we went, it was like walking up a sidewalk. Could probably have done it in bedroom slippers, if you'd had the urge. )

    But that was before this snowfall. I don't know what it's like now.

    Hood sounds lovely - my aunt and uncle live literally within sight of it. Incidentally, I'm headed out that way in late June to climb Rainier. Can't wait - it's a heck of a lot more mountain then...

    Hedgehog.

    At the recommendation of our very own KD Talbot, I persuaded my dad to go with me to a cute little mountain sitting on the slopes of Passaconaway by the name of Mount Hedgehog. It was an awfully cute...

    Rainier in May or June.

    Mornin', ya'll. I've decided that it's time to fulfill a life-long dream of mine; to climb the crown jewel of lower 48 mountaineering, Mount Rainier. 14,410 feet of pure magnificence. I can't wait....

    I'll just pop in here to say good luck, if you decide to go. Washington can be, if it decides to be, quite an enjoyable little mountain. I'm actually planning to go up myself, either this Saturday or...

    Thanks, Kevin. My dad especially is looking forward to it - I think the 4000 footers are starting to look bigger and bigger to him, if you know what I mean. :) I'll bring back photos of our trek.

    Are you sure you mean Tuckermans and not Huntington? Stupid question, I know, it's just that I've never heard anyone use the word 'pitch' to refer to climbs in Tuckermans, while I have plenty of...

    Trail Report - and still another question.

    Yesterday, a man from my church with whom I've never been hiking invited me to go with him to Crawford Notch. Loving the mountains, I of course agreed unhesitatingly. After a late start (7:30, if you...

    A belated thanks to you, Kevin, for that. As it turned out, I didn't go because I found out it was a 94 mile round trip. I'm in decent shape, and I'm sure I could have ridden that far and still...

    Do you mean Belknap Mountain? I keep meaning to head there, but haven't yet. You can see Mount Washington from Mount Major next door; I'm sure you could see it from Belknap.
