Charlie Thorn, Emily Thorn, Deb and Tom Garrison (RD), plus Todd and Tucker the dogs
First field we cross
Deb and Emily coming up through an Aspen grove
Charlie and his daughter, Emily
Again after a switchback
This is bear scat! Must've been eating some berries, ey?
Old log cabin
Deb looking for the trail
Great views all day
Trail to the left
Deb running down the trail
More beautiful S. Co. countryside
Emily and Todd heading up the big hill
Deb coming up behind me
Tucker and the beginning of snow sign
Tucker just loves the snow, being a NH native!
Deb still coming up, in the snow now
A group of hikers we met on top
(Tucker was very interested in their lunch)
Where we're headed
High point, somewhere around 13K'
Yeah, we're going down there
Deb and Tucker head down, Emily and Todd are in the distance, two specks on the right
It was getting cold up there
This is a great event
Tucker heading down the ridgeline
Brrrrrr...A storm with thunder was rolling in and we opted to cut off a small loop to get out of the weather
...and the storm arrived!
Tucker had NO idea what we were about to do...
Still great views in the storm...
Which way! This isn't fun anymore!
Trying to get down as fast as possible
Down lower it cleared up
Not bad at all, but we were wet and cold!
Starting to warm up, the hood's off
Tucker is still wondering which way to go..
Clancy, A mule we came upon standing across the trail. He loved Tucker!
He didn't want to move, so we went around him.
The finish is at the base of those cliffs
Tucker is getting tired...Deb is too
Very muddy to the end
