    Default Pawtuckaway Mountains (North and South) 12-29-11

    Hi Everyone!

    I was able to hangout with an old friend this past Thursday and decided to hike in Pawtuckaway. We did a pretty big loop, going over North and South Mountains. The skies were blue and the views were great. I even think I spotted Mount Washington's white cap poking up in the distance, but not totally sure.

    Also, there were three NGS Reference Markers on North Mountain, all pointing to the summit cairn. Does anyone know if there is in fact an NGS Benchmark under the cairn??? I'm kicking myself for not digging into it to see for myself. Wondering if anyone else out there knows.

    My full trip report and pictures are on my blog here: http://livefreeandhikenh.blogspot.co...ld-friend.html

    Some of my favorite pics are below:

    Part of Round Pond


    Beaver Activity


    Uncanoonucs and what I believe is Pack Monadnock in the distance


    I think...Mount Washington poking up in the distance. The quality is pretty bad due to how far I had to zoom in.

    Nice write-up Karl. Hiking is a great way to catch up with old friends.
    If that really is Washington in your picture, that's some pretty impressive visibility!

    Thanks for sharing.

    I really like the Round Pond pictures and those beavers are just amazing how they do that for little critters... lol
