Although today began cloudy, conditions slowly cleared throughout the day. Lelia and Andy and I headed for Moosilauke, climbing Gorge Brook, and then heading down Carriage Road and Snapper.
Unfortunately, there were many, many other people out hiking today – a holiday here in the US – because it has rained for the past five days and this was the first (somewhat) nice day for a week. Still, a fine day for a hike! Read on and check the Photo gallery.
Here’s a spot I always pause, near the South Peak where the Glencliff trail meets the Carriage Road trail. What a difference since March!
The best thing about summer hiking on Moosilauke is a stop at the Moose Scoops in Warren, where I had the Redstone Missle Brownie Sundae, with scoops of Moose Tracks and Muddy Boots, for lunch.

Hike stats: Approx 2h10m up, 15m summit, 2h down, including stops and a lengthy walk along access road.
