    Anthony -

    If you haven't had a chance yet check out the trip report for our Greenleaf/Galehead/Zealand trip. http://www.mountwashington.org/forum...ead.php?t=4033

    This will at give you an idea what the route is like with near perfect conditions (which we were absolutely blessed to have). Make sure you take the short loop out to Zeacliff when you are going from Galehead to Zealand (you could miss it if you didn't know it was there or didn't believe the "view" sign). Hope you won't need any of the winter gear this time (or the rain gear for that matter).

    Default Great weekend.

    Hello again,

    We made it through the weekend with no bumps or bruises (the entire adult team are little sore). The weather was perfect & the huts were pretty cool. Hiking up to Galehead was a shock to the legs & hiking 7 miles Saturday hut to hut was hard but we all took our time (we did run out of water Saturday even though we loaded up extra) & all the through hikers confirmed it was hardest hiking they did so far. The kids loved the falls! I'll follow up with pictures.
    Thanks again for all your advice. I can’t wait for our next trip in 2009.
    Anthony

    Glad you guys had a great trip and the kids all had fun - especially when they felt that it was hard. They will surely be looking forward to another challenge next year. Looking forward to seeing the pictures.
