The Pemi and Beyond

September 10, 2009 at 6:30 am 2 comments

After a long haitus from hiking (though I was able to climb Rex Dome in Alaska, but alas, only could consume a Snickers), my friend Marieke and I decided to do a little backpacking. After planting a car at the Lincoln Woods Visitors Center, we drove up to the head of the North Twin trail. A couple of miles in, we decided to set up camp for the night, preparing for the potentially grueling day to come.

As Thursday dawned, we awoke, heading up the North Twin trail, summiting North Twin, followed by South Twin, and on to Mount Guyot, where my friend had her first Summit Cheeseburger, an Angry Whopper from BK. I had been enjoying BK Burger Shots (six small burgers, perfect for our six peaks). We fought some tough up-hills, and enjoyed a bit of a ridge walk, before entering the Pemigiwassett Wilderness. Once there, the Bondcliff trail and the West Bond spur took us up, in order, West Bond, Bond, and Bondcliff. The weather was perfect, and the views wonderful.

Our weary knees took us about 4.5 miles down to the end of the trail, where we collapsed for the night. Blissfully, the 4 mile hike out in the morning along the Wilderness and the Lincoln Woods trails was as flat as could be, with the Pemi East Branch running along side of us. It was the perfect way to end the summer.

    Welcome Marieke – it sounds as though you didn’t join in the gut-busting six summit event – but glad to see your contribution on Mount Guyot.
