Ascent Trip Report

This is my second attempt, after an earlier visit during wetter weather when I couldn't find a place off the road that was firm enough to park. It's been on the try-again list for a while, too long considering how close to home it is. This time, I parked just past the "authorized vehicles only" sign, and it was good enough. Nice straightforward walk on a gravel road. Spike loved being out today, and didn't even mind all the 4-wheelers. Great views all around, from Mt. Washington to Monadnock to the Boston skyline.
