Back in the Saddle, Again
Lincoln, NH, the heart of the White Mountains.
Despite the foreboding date, Friday the 13th was a gorgeous day in the White Mountains of New Hampshire - and it was great to get back on the trail. A huge thank you to Alex Roberts, Philip Carcia, and Justin Walsh for making the time to get out there.
It was the kind of day that reminds you why you love it so much. In just a few hours, we enjoyed ‘discovering’ an old/abandoned trail (Osseo - trip write up to follow), enjoyed bright sunshine, warm temperatures, hiked through 1-2’ of snow, got some great product shots, bagged a 4000 footer, and took in some great new views (could see Mansfield in the distance, at least we think we did!). It was glorious.
The best part of the day, however, was just lounging around the summit with three friends for over an hour. What did we talk about - everything and nothing at all simultaneously – and that is what made it so special. In our ‘always on demand’ world, it was great to just enjoy each other’s company and not worry about the ‘real’ world down in the valleys.
We hope you are ‘back in the saddle again’ soon – whether it is hiking, walking, biking, running, kayaking or whatever it is you love to do. We also hope you can carve out some time with friends and just enjoy the moment, be present and soak it all in. Good luck and get out there!
