Mt. Shaw, Black Snout, and Tate Mountain

July 5th, 8 hikers of B group set out for an ambitious 7.7 mile hike covering 3 summits in the Ossipee's.  Mt. Shaw, the highest in the Ossipee's, and one of the 52 with a view, provides a steep climb, which lead to a very rewarding lunch at the summit.  The weather was hot, 87 degrees, with 93% humidity in the morning; a wicked hot New England day.  As we took the descent to head towards Black Snout, we could literally feel the humidity dropping, as well as our elevation.

As we started our final approach to Tate Mountain, we enjoyed the surprise of ripe blueberries along the path.  All three summits provided wonderful views;  each a bit different.  As we stood at Tate mountain and looked to the right seeing just how far we had covered, we all were pleased with the day.

Mt. Shaw is shown on the right, then to Black Snout on the far left, then to Tate, where the photo is taken from.
