Ascent Trip Report

19 members in the original group but most went up to Mt. Washington. Looking up at the mist-covered summit from Mansfield Station I thought it would lift. Up the Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail, visited the Gem Pool with 2 beautiful waterfalls, some scrambling up boulders with lunch at the AMC Lake in the Clouds Hut. The mist never lifted and the summit was all fogged in. Light/brief showers made the descent down the boulders interesting. We celebrated Diane's #48 with a chilled bottle of Champaign. # 32 of the NH 48 for me!
