My trip to New Hampshire, as told by pictures
I got to go for a mountain bike ride while I was there. It was fun and totally different than my usual mountain bike rides. I rode the ski lift up and then got to cruise downhill the whole time. I was mostly on gravel roads. It was nice riding past beautiful scenery and just letting myself gently roll.
One afternoon I had time for a short hike. I found this little trail that packed several cool features into about 30 minutes worth of hiking. First was this log bridge right before a set of stone steps.
Hiking to this point was a struggle. The ascent was steep with several rock scrambles, more for me since I’m short. On top of that we were booking it. The loop was 4.5 miles and we only had an hour and a half to hike. This was the best view of the whole hike. You could see mountains for almost 360 degrees. After this, there was a good bit of running to make it back down the mountain in time for the bus, but we made it! I kept up with the boys and I wasn’t even the slowest one. My everything was sore the next day. I’m so happy that I pushed myself to do the whole hike rather than just part of the loop. By far, my favorite memory from this trip.
