Ascent Trip Report


My 1st hike of a 4,000 footer since tearing my Quad tendon 3/9/13 ..It felt really good to be out hiking & also hiking with a good friend Mike Berger...This was part of the Flags on the 48 ....I participated in it last year & was real hopeful to do it again this year & happily I was....I was a dreary day & never got to see the sun except when we went over Mt Surprise we got a few glimpes of the town of Gorham , rest of the time we were t either rained or we were in the clouds....The trail was either a small stream or a muddy mess. When we got to the summit it was windy & cold & cloudy....I was very happy with myself on hiking up as it took me 3.5 hrs 30 minutes off book time.But coming down was hard & the ledges were very slippery & I wasn't happy with that as it took me 4hrs & 40 minutes
Also on our hike was the organizer Shawn Ducrow ,Darin , Larry & Lenny
