Our first NH 4k footer!

A small B group of two, hiked their first 4k footer, Mt. Liberty on Aug 2nd.  Rain, a bazillion rocks, and an amazing view!  Not to mention some very tired ladies and incredibly sore legs!  But woo hoo, we did it!

Seriously, this is the trail?
The view from Mt. Liberty, thankfully the rain had stopped just before we hit the summit.  :)

B group hikes Coppermine Trail to Bridal Falls



12 hikers and 5 dogs hiked to Bridal Falls on July 26th, 2016


On the hike up the Coppermine trail the group was looking for the plaque Betty Davis had placed on a rock for Arthur Farnsworth who assisted her down the trail at some point years ago. He was eventually her first husband. We found it, and I  recorded the GPS info for it.  

Coordinates are as follows:
Elevation 1414 Ft
North 44 deg   10 min  30.6 sec
West 071 deg  44 min  20.7 sec
The map datum I used was WGS 84
