Ascent Trip Report

Epic day with Maryellen and Eric Avery! Started with a sunrise hike of Cannon, then breakfast, a nap, and then back to the Basin trailhead at 1:30pm for a hike of North and South Kinsman. Loved Lonesome Lake and seeing a NH Hut for the first time. Tough climb up the Fishin' Jimmy trail to North Kinsman. Interesting to hike along such a tough section of the AT (w/ sasquatch footprints in the rock). Quick 35 minute trek over to South Kinsman and 30 mins back to North Kinsman for a snack at the Overlook. Then back down to Lonesome Lake where I truly wished we could have stayed. At the lake around 8:15PM with the 2 mile hike still to the car in the dark. We were back to the parking lot by 9:50 completely exhausted. Fun memories made as always. Total for the day was 14.7 miles with 5,700 elevation gain! We decided by 11pm when we were going to bed to not hike the next day so we just went to Flapjacks again for breakfast and headed home. Exciting ended to our NH weekend was the Moose sighting on the drive home!
