4K #2 & 3 Kinsman Mountains

The summit of Kinsman was totally in the clouds, without reward. Though nearly without wind, surprising. It was a pretty wicked climb. At times it seemed the trail was routed right down streams and waterfalls on both sides. Many people opt for a local hostel to "slack pack" on Moosilauke and Kinsmans. A slack pack...

Wet in the Whites

It's late morning on my first summit of the day. At this point my body is a processor of the steady stream of spring water I'm... Continue Reading →
