Pete's New England Hiking

  1. An autumn day hike on Mount Washington, in the White mountains of New Hampshire. Here is a very real example of how the weather surrounding Mount Washington takes on a life of its own. On this splendid, fall day, with forecasted temperatures in the low 50s at the Pinkham Notch visitor's center (2030 feet elevation), the wind was to be between 5 and 9 mph. On the summit of Mount Washington (6288 feet elevation), only a 4.0 mile hike away, the temperatures and wind conditions were vastly different. The forecasted wind chill on the summit was 5 degrees Fahrenheit, while the wind was . . . well, we got thrashed at 5050 feet elevation & only 1.5 miles left. Although we saw MANY hikers who wore sneakers & actually continued to hike as the conditions deteriorated, we were PREPARED! We both carried gear for what is referred to as "full winter conditions".

  2. Kearsarge North is only a 10 minute drive from the town of North Conway. It also harbors the last remaining fire tower in all of the White Mountains. Due to its location and its relatively short hiking distance, this mountain enjoys a tremendous popularity. On a clear day, this summit will encompass nearly an entire 360 degree panoramic view.
