Angela Z, Gary H and I managed to get out for a humid, sunny weekend in the White Mountains for a mini-BPL-Northeast-Chapter hike. I'll just post a few pictures for now, but if you want the full story, I just put it up here.
Fording the Pemi River, somewhat unnecessarily, since there was a bridge right around the corner.
Looking at Owl's Head and Franconia Ridge from Bondcliff.
The classic Bondcliff photo with West Bond behind us.
Hazy evening with Mount Garfield and Galehead Hut.
Gary and me at the summit of Owl's Head, enjoying the extensive views.
The green tunnel to the finish line.
For a full range of pictures, go here.

Nice photos. I was up on Franconia there a few weekends ago, but was socked in with fog. Nice to see the mountains.Aug 17, 2009 at 7:39 pm #1521515

Great pictures–Not too many Green Tunnels here in the West-I wish the Sierras were a little bit more lush and not in a drought!!Aug 18, 2009 at 4:43 am #1521556

Its been a long time since Ive been to the Bonds. I intend to go there before the winter comes.
I see that you went to the Long trail Festival too. I missed it again this year!Aug 18, 2009 at 6:59 am #1521574
Jay, did I hear a west-coast hiker wishing for east-coast terrain? That's got to be a first.
Has anyone clicked on the link for the rest of the pictures? Picture of a maggot-ridden moose carcass, anyone? Have I piqued your interest?
Yep, this trip to the Whites reminded me that carrying a light pack doesn't necessarily make your a better hiker– my legs were quite sore at the end of the day.Aug 18, 2009 at 7:55 am #1521581

Nice Moose Dude!!! A green tunnel would be a change of pace compared to looking at Yosemite Valley, 12 to 14,000 ft peaks and glacial domes.. Just having fun-still great pictures….Aug 18, 2009 at 12:12 pm #1521630

Yeah… very relieved to hear that you were hurting as well, Ryan! Great trip, excellent scenery… good times!
I was beat the next day at work, though. Sheesh.
Anyway. Hopefully more BPL New Englanders will be able to join in next time! We'll have to plan a trip with more advance notice… and better conditioned legs!Aug 18, 2009 at 1:55 pm #1521651

Great hike summary! I am recently relocated to RI from Boulder, CO, and would love to join in on future expeditions. The Rockies are great and all, but man have I missed the northeast.

More NE BPL hikes would be great. Anybody want to try a day hike some weekend in September? We'll see.Aug 19, 2009 at 1:12 pm #1521867

The VT50 is 9/27. I find that it always makes for a nice day hike.Sep 7, 2009 at 8:37 am #1525634
