Into NH: End of 2013 Hike


Although I only hiked about 2 1/2 weeks last year, it felt like I covered a lot of ground passing through Massachusetts, Vermont, and touching NH. It was a sweet 230 miles, especially going through the Green Mountain National Forest. The old saying is, once you reach New Hampshire you've done 80% of the miles but only 50% of the work. So I guess it's time to find out for myself.
I feel both excited and nervous about heading up into the White Mountains. I know it's some epic, breathtaking country but I hope for some decent weather and that my body can adjust quickly since I'll only have a couple days before I hit some big ups. One step at a a time, right?

I will say that New England has some sweet little trail towns. I really enjoyed Dalton, Cheshire, Bennington, Rutland, and Hanover last year. Looking forward what the AT holds for me this year.
