Sorry for delay but haven’t had enough signal to upload pics 😀
Early start from Hazen’s Notch was a good idea. Very challenging day with lots of big elevation & some lumps too heh.
Some neat alpine beaver ponds near the Tillotson shelter.
I skipped the Belvedere summit spur & barely made camp before dark. Tough day!
The day started early. Neighbors had loud sleeping pads & were rolling around. Oh well I had mountains to climb.
Jay Peak was visible through the trees right from the start. Then the trail popped out on a ski run before heading back into the trees.
No more pics after Jay . The trail was an uphill rollercoaster over Gilpin & Buchanan before turning into a downhill rollercoaster to Hazen’s Notch camp.
Tomorrow will be new trail, up for a bit I hear heh. Not sure how far I will go. An adventure!
What a beautiful day to start. Blue sky, sunshine & even a breeze at times. Probably 20 degrees cooler than last time I was here.
Still sweaty work out there. This trail makes you climb to the start before it starts making you climb.
Camped at Laura Woodward in my hammock. Time to make some dinner & put on more clothes. I can see the top of Jay from here. Headed there first thing tomorrow.
Day 16 was wet with dramatic skies after several thunderstorms rolled through during the night. Some great views on Mt Crawford before reaching Crawford Notch and the end of the mighty Cohos Trail.
Day 15 started with surprise rain and more pack issues. After a wet day on the Davis Path I camped one last time.
Day 14 had some incredible views as I hiked up over the Crawford Path ridge and down into the Dry River Wilderness.
Day 13 started with a rumble of thunder at 5am. It also was the day I really wanted to quit, but didn’t!
Day 12 started with a 9am sub sandwich and ended on the side of a mountain as darkness gathered.
This day was the second half of the Kilkenny traverse hitting Terrace Mtn, Mt Weeks, Middle and South Weeks, Waumbek and finally Starr King late in the day.
This day saw the start of the Kilkenny Ridge at South Pond, views from Unknown Pond, The Horn and Bunnell Notch on the way down from Mt Cabot.
