Down in the Mount Monadnock parking lot before beginning the climb up.
Paula and Jeff Washburn, Me, Deb, Bert Meyer, Deb's son Josh and Cindy Gallant.
Deb and Steve getting ready to hike up the mountain to get married.
Bert Meyer (best man) beat us up and perched on a rock outcropping to watch the wedding party hike up.
It was a warm, but hazy morning on Mount Monadnock
Thinking that's Dublin Lake, so we're looking North
Always cloudy and misty in New England
Typical surface we climbed up...this is the White Dot trail, which is only about 2.75 miles to the summit
Norm and Cindy Gallant, old friends of mine.
Steve, Deb, Cindy and Norm
Deb's son Josh with friend Cindy
Deb and I getting out of our running clothes into our wedding duds.
Jeff and Paula Washburn in the back
Keene Sentinel photographer photographing Deb getting ready
Bert putting on my carnation
Why did the photographer only care about Deb? ;-)
It was a happy day
Don't remember what I was talking about here...
Deb putting on some makeup in behind me
Let's get the show on the road!
Deb is so beautiful :-)
Moments before...Deb's son Josh watching his mom about to get married.
Don't remember who that was fixing my tie..Norm and Cindy to the left
I think Deb is supposed to have the bouquet!
OK, that's better...
...as we walk up to the alter, the highest point on Monadnock.
Sue Johnston, matron of honor, walks up with us.
I have no idea what we were looking at.
Still looking..maybe we were watching Alfred the Butler getting into his suit.
Josh Reno, Deb's son
Craig Wilson was running late, so he parked on the other side of the mountain and ran up the 4+ mile steep Pumpelly trail.
Waiting on Alfred
"Do you Deb take this man Steve..."
Deb must be saying "I do"
Or maybe she was singing...
Love the clouds in this picture
Nice photo on the high point of Mount Monadnock
I don't know why some of these are little...
These might be the Keene Sentinel's photos that are small
October 13, 2001
Deb and I were married on top of Mount Monadnock
Bert Meyer, best man, looking on from the left and Craig Wilson looking from the right.
Alfred the butler from Batman was our JP ;-)
Don't believe that time stamp ;-)
It was a happy day for us
I think we're married!
...hugs all around
Just married and about to run down the mountain trail with those signs on our backs...
Now back in our yard in Dublin, NH.
Our nice little barn apartment in Dublin, NH.
We were so happy there...wish we were still there when life was so simple!
The Pero family
From the right, Me, Deb, my sister Chrissy, her husband David, My daughter Kristin, My brother John, my son Mike, my mother, niece Lauren and nephew Jake.
My aunt Rita, my mom and aunt Marie
Time to cut the cake
Granddaughter Tatiana looking up at us
I think Tatiana is more interested in the cake ;-)
Friends and family gathered around
Oops, didn't mean to smash the cake in Deb's face ;-)
Me holding Tatiana, Deb wiping cake off her face as Sue Holt looks on.
Deb's turn....but she was nicer than I was.
My son Mike, talking with Deb
Mount Monadnock in the fall
The Pumpelly Trail on Monadnock, the longest trail at over 4 miles and one of our favorites.
This is what Craig Wilson ran up when he was running late.
Mount Monadnock in the Looong Winter
Another great shot of Monadnock
Here is a video about the mountain, which is a special place in the Monadnock region of SW New Hampshire, where Deb and I lived. Here it is simply called "The Mountain"
