    Default Are You Lonesome (Lake) Tonight 10/24/09

    As a fellow member of the MWO hiking community stated on a previous thread: that occasionally one needs to do an ?emergency hike?; well that?s exactly what our hike to Lonesome Lake was to be for us. After getting up at 4 am and driving 9 ? hours to Franconia Notch, New Hampshire, we needed to stretch our legs a bit and this mile and a half hike ?filled the bill?. The forecast for Saturday 10/24 did not look promising for our scheduled hike with fellow AMC members to the summit of Mount Cabot; otherwise we would probably have skipped this hike.
    The temperature at 3 pm was around 50 degrees with little wind and we completed our leisurely hike before dark. Here are a few of our photos:

    Can't think of a better way to stretch you legs after all that time in the car - particularly on a day with the killer views of Franconia Ridge across the lake. A great "emergency hike indeed". Hope the rest of the weekend turned out well too Donna. Perhaps we'll be hearing more soon?

    Very nice pictures. Often times the shorter hikes turn out to be the best. Thanks for sharing!

    I never want to see a day
    That's over forty degrees
    I'd rather have it thirty,
    Twenty, ten, five and let it freeeeEEEEEEeeze!
