Here I am back in New Hampshire at the family cottage on Lake Winnipesaukee. The swimming is glorious and the weather perfect. This year the entire family descended, including married granddaughter, Cally, and husband, Zack. traveling from York, England. How about that? Together we are eleven!
Our first mountain expedition was the traditional Mt. Major near Alton, NH. It’s small but has trails that include sweet cliffs and ledges. A great starter. Tomorrow we head for the biggie…Mt. Washington. Will get back to you on that. This is great training for my return to the Himalayas in November. Nothing, except the increased altitude, is more challenging than Lion’s Head or Huntington Ravine on Washington.
Here is the Peterson gang, with Winnipesaukee and its islands in the distance.
