Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Hiking with dogs - Mt Washington, NH   Tue Jul 28, 2015 1:33 pm

So on Saturday a few of us met up and tackled Mt Washington, NH. It's the tallest in the northeast and second tallest in the eastern US at 6288', and although that number pales in comparison to the stuff out west it is absolutely no joke. It's very steep and rocky, and the dogs actually had trouble in spots (not to mention me too...). The day started out picture perfect, but then the clouds rolled in and by the time we got to the top it was raining on us. So much for being able to see the coast from the top, huh? We also wound up driving back down. One of my friends is diabetic and had a bit of a sugar crisis early on, so she turned back and drove up to meet us at the top. As slick as the rocks were, we decided it would be better to just go ahead and hitch a ride to the bottom with her. Despite all that, it was a fantastic climb and I'm glad I got to do it. It was really awesome to finally meet Amy, Wayne, and Ami as well Smile

My AllTrails recorded track. The milage was a bit off, it's supposed to be 4.4 miles:


The turds before the hike:


At the trailhead:


My friends Ali, Haley, and Margaret. Margaret only hiked a little because she's 6 months pregnant and had to be at work later in the day:


Coming up the trail:


























Nearing the top:




Summit brew! I actually went with Woodchuck cider, which is made in VT. Close enough...


The top!






The turds after the hike. It was a quiet drive home Razz

Looks like so much fun but rough! I do love the picture on your FB of Ghost all curled in a ball on the rocks. Smile

Some beautiful pics!!! I know the storm kinda ruined your view for you but I also think it adds to the beauty of everything. Very pretty .

Ghost is just such a pretty girl ... Gotta be honest, Denali doesn't look like a brat in these pics, haha, they both look super well behaved!
