I got stuck in Boston for the weekend on a business trip and so decided to spend
some time in the wilderness of the White Mountains.

I found this route on the internet and it seemed like a decent goal for a solo afternoon hike.
Here is the river valley I followed for part of the route starting at the Dartmouth College lodge.

Here is a shot from walking over a bridge through the forest.

I had forgotten how much rock is in New England. 'Trails' are often rock piles that
have less moss growing on them like this one.

The fog was pretty thick through most of the day. I didn't get much of the promised view on this
day, but the weather was warmer than it was in Calgary for the 15th of November.

I wanted to show the amount of fog. It started to clear up for a few minutes.

Some of the coniferous forest. Um, so this is about the point that I realized I had added about
4 miles to my hike by taking the wrong trail to the summit. Oh well, I didn't have anywhere to
be that day.

Here you can see the sweet new Arcteryx soft shell pants I tried out on this trip.

It doesn't seem that high but most of the mountains in New England start pretty low. I took the
Ridge Trail up and the Gorge Trail down.
