    Default Martin Luther King Weekend - Jan 17-19, 2009

    I am hoping to find one day on Martin Luther King Day weekend in January to hike back into Tuckermans Ravine and take pictures. The key is to pick the best weather of the 3 days. Just looking for a day hike back to the headwall - no summit attempt for me.

    Would anyone be interested in meeting me at Pinkham Notch Visitor Center on the last minute selected day and coming along?

    I tend not to plan anything more than a few days in advance ... but if I'm around, I'd love to go!

    I have it on my calendar and will try to make it up for a hike. How about doing the head lamp routine again since the trail is well marked and we're unlikely to get lost like I did on Kearsarge? ;-) We could catch sunrise at the headwall! I'll bring the DD, bagels and hot chocolate.

    Sunrise in the ravine is a bit hard since most of the ravine floor never sees the sun all day - in the winter.

    Oh, I am assuming the "DD" stands for Dunkin Donuts as opposed to your Dear Daughter. I don't think she will join us.

    Maybe he wants to play a game of Dungeons and Dragons at the headwall?

    Yes, yes, DD = Dunkin Donuts. It seems there is one every mile or so up north, but we just don't get many down here (we occasionally drive an hour on Sunday mornings to treat the kids). So .. no sun by the headwall? We'll just have to climb to the rim. ;-)

    Ok, flight is booked, gear has been ordered (will arrive tomorrow), and I've worked out a car swap routine with Bill. All I need now is good weather for a short hike .. Brad, that's your gig .. whip up some nice hiking weather on one of those 3 days.

    I thought we determined in last summer's STP that Brian Clark was officially responsible for providing good weather. Is that just for STP?
