    Default Love for This Mountain

    Drawn to Mt Washington,
    I also seem to never get enough, First hike when I was
    12 years old. Lived in MA. back then.
    Now Living in NH for 15 years, I have this unreal
    draw to this Mt. You will find me on any given time of
    the year sleeping in my truck or in the back of my truck,
    all to spend time next to this MT.
    I have been up the auto road by myself in a ragging blizzard
    in Jan. To a midnight climb to tux. in May. I can sit just about
    anywhere on MT Washington and find my Peace. (spent hours on
    the snow fields just a Month ago or so (no snow). But plenty in
    bowl and high on Lions head.
    I think I know what draws me in and I am just thankful to
    have this place to feel closer to Him.(My Father)
    In the last couple of years all my climbs have been around
    This MT.

My total hiking to the summit is now just over 50 times. Last summer I did it 3 times including STP. This year i am a bit behind schedule with STP being my first hike up.

    The summer camp I went to in NH had a Mt Washington Squad which was an honor trip. The staff selected who would go. Citizenship and support of others was as important as ability to do it. From that hike in 1959 I have been coming back for more each year. This year I will drive up from NC - take a day of rest - then join in the STP fun on Saturday. It is a great mountain - the trails are good - there is so much variety that each time up is different. But, one does have to watch out for the weather and be safe.
    50 times!!!!!
    Way to go Brad!!!!!!

    Tomorrow (Wednesday) I'm attempting a pre-STP climb. Snacks at Hojos.
    Summit = in God's hands.

    Smile always,

    We will watch for you in the Ravines camera when you are at HoJo's. When you get to the summit make sure you stand on the deck for the Deck camera to get you on the quarter hour.

    I can't stop smiling.

    PERFECT WEATHER!!!
    It doesn't get any better!!!

    This day was a gift.

    I left my house at 6 am.
    On the trail at 9 (Tuckerman's).
    That really was quite the "highway".
    Lunch rocks "mini picnic".
    Summit @ 1:15.
    Full picnic (plaid blanket included) on the obs. deck.
    Time out: 3:00 - down Lion's Head.
    Very peaceful - no traffic down.
    Cascade Falls by 7.
    Paiding for my MW badge for my pack by 7:30.
    Ice cream at 8.
    Home by 10:30.

    SMILE . . . SMILE . . . SMILE!!!
