Moose Mountain Bagged

2 down and only 2,174.2 to go on the AT; South Peak Moose Mtn., NH August 24th, 2008; 2222 ft, 1.8 miles each way 1200 ft elevation gain:

GroovyGirl was up for another summit bid. I thought for sure after yesterday’s hike up Mt Cardigan, GroovyGirl might be a bit tired, but this was not the case. The trail is almost entirely in the shade of the elms and oaks, which was quite nice, as it was a rather warm day. We enjoyed the summit alone with our 4 cheeseburgers. One for each, GroovyMom, Dad, Girl and Old Dog. GroovyBoy was asleep and did not consume his picoburger. There are several bogs to cross along the trail, and GroovyGirl slipped into one. Groovy Mom extracted her and we continued on our way. The blistering pace of 3.6 miles in 4 hours was achieved. In fact, GroovyGirl still had enough energy to take GroovyDad swimming in the lake to cool down after our return home.
