What’s Your Happy Place?

Seven hikes, ten days, New Hampshire 2014.

Miles hiked:  47.

Vertical feet climbed:  14,838.

One pair of pants.

Zero blisters (a minor miracle).

One mountain closer to the Four Thousand Footers Club.  (Thank you, Mt. Carrigain!)

 

I may be home, but I’m not quite back from vacation, yet.

 

On the way home, we binged on The Moth Radio Hour, one of my favorite podcasts.  People tell their stories before a live audience.  One storyteller mentioned that his happy place was in the car eating an Egg McMuffin.

 

My happy place is in nature, preferable on top of mountains.  So I thought I’d just share a few photos from the happy places we climbed last week.  Just until my brain starts working normally again.

 

(No blisters.  Truly miraculous.)

Going down.  The only thing standing between me and the car.

Lovely alpine lake.

 

We're going up there!

Just about to go over the top.

Twenty-two minutes.  Twenty-two glorious minutes to ourselves at the top of Mt. Willard.  Followed by busloads of people in white tennis shoes who got up late and ate at Flapjacks first.  We rock.

Same town. Littleton…home of Pollyanna. They really want you to be glad, here.

 

Trail hounds.
