Mt Moosilauke via Glencliff Trail

On Saturday we went up Moosilauke via the Glencliff trail. While there were quite a lot of mosquitos attacking us, once we got a little bit higher they were all gone and it turned into an enjoyable hike.
Even still found a little bit of snow 🙂

Watkins Glenn & Lake George

The long (Memorial Day) weekend gave us a chance to tick off one of the things we had on our list for quite some time: Watkins Glenn in NY.

Yes, I was there too
eerie and too many people
Looking nice though
Still too many people

The day after we escaped the tourist trap and walked up to the peak of Five Mile Mountain via Clay Meadow Trailhead.

Neat beaver damn

Flume and Liberty May 13th

This past weekend had the perfect weather to be outdoors. Sunny, not warm, not cold. More importantly, almost no mosquitos! We both got a couple of bites though. We decided to check off two more of the 4K footers from the list and hiked Flume and Liberty.

We now understand what the fuss is about avoiding the Flume slide trail in wet weather/conditions.

At the end of the line we both agreed that it was a good decision to do the loop, totally worth it. The in-out route via Liberty Spring Trail would have been boring 🙂

The Flume -> Liberty ridge line still had some snow 🙂

Plenty of water crossings
