    Your pictures are beautiful! I'm glad you had such a good time! I think that the photos hide one aspect of your hike... the humidity! It must have been extremely humid out there over the last couple days. We've been sweltering in Ashland, which isn't too far away.

    Still glad to hear that you enjoyed it so much! Thank you for sharing your photos!

    Nice pics! Did you sign the register at the top of this trail-less summit?

    I've not climbed this one, it's been on my "to do" list for a couple of years now. I'm envious you've been. The "true" summit is not reached by trails. You must bushwhack up from the maintained trails. From the looks of your pics you were up on the ledges just below the summit.

    Many of New Hamphsire's 3000 footers are only reached by bushwhacking.

    For peakbaggers that climb these mountains there is usually a register at the summit to sign to prove that they've been there. Sometimes it's a capped pvc tube with papers inside, other times it's simply a mason jar.

    Nice hike and pictures!
