12:24 am - Leonids over Galehead
The AMC 4000 Footer Club tracks those who have completed all 48 high peaks in New Hampshire. I finished my 4000 footer project in early 2006 on Mt Liberty but neglected to file an application for club status at the time. It's time to fulfill the essay requirement and sew a patch onto my pack. Rather than describe that final ascent, I want to cover the most memorable one: Mt Galehead, barely eligible at 4024 ft.( adventure, astronomy, and navigational errorsCollapse )
Here's to (non-fatal) mistakes, and the unexpected adventures they bring!
