A Foggy New Hampshire Day

September 22, 2008 at 5:44 pm 2 comments

Two of my teammates and I decided to go for a little retreat to the White Mountains on Sunday, and decided to attempt Galehead Mountain. The drive up was lovely, as was the beginning of the hike, a gentle stroll. As we left the Gale River Trail and hit Garfield Ridge, we realized that perhaps the fog was creeping in rather fast. A steady ascent to the top confirmed this, though at the true summit there would not be many views anyways because of trees, so we moved down to a lookout after cheeseburger consumption. Of course, I was the only one to consume a cheeseburger that day, as my teammates, Elsie, a vegetarian, and Lange, not big on cold burgers, declined to partake. At said lookout, we could see absolutely nothing, just the side of the mountain dropping off below us. It was a rather uneventful day, but the poor views provoked the mandate for another hiking trip in perhaps November, when our racing season is over. It was though, a lovely ten mile walk, and a generally pleasant day, if not a bit cold. Hot chocolate later in the evening was well embraced.

Summit!

    Flame Broiled,

    That cairn you’re standing on probably has more elevation than your Rhode Island peak even without the mountain below it!

    We need to start carpooling to the Whites if you’re going to make a habit of this… I was up there on Sunday bagging Flume and Liberty (post coming soon).
