Mount Chocorua, July 10th 2012
Last Tuesday we went on what we thought was going to be our big climb of the week, Mount Chocorua!
Abbiamo preso il sentiero che costeggiaa le cascate di Champney Falls.
We went up Champney Falls trail.
Along the path, we met a dead mole, poor thing....
We were all equipped(well, James at least).
Here are the Falls.
And the path goes up, up....
At some point, through the trees, we saw Mount Washington in the distance.
Trees become a bit more sparse.
And we start scrambling on rocks. James goes straight up the rock face, on his own...
At some point, I have a doubt: where's the trail?
Sometimes I see some markings on the rocks, otherwise you must find your own way up.
Here we are, on top at lunchtime.
The descent is much faster.....
We made it!
