A set of photo allbums by Dave Socky
A New England Adventure - Oct 2009

These are pictures from a great 8 days of hiking in New England with Rickey Shortt and Tommy Bell. We summated three high points - Mt Washington in New Hampshire, Mount Mansfield in Vermont, and Mt Marcy in New York, plus numerous other peaks in all three states. Mount Washington had 3 to 4 inches of rime ice and 35 to 45 mile per hour winds. It rained a bunch but our last day on Mt Marcy was beautiful (although it started out in the rain and snow). Just like our last day, it rained a good portion of our trip, but that didn't stop us from racking up the miles. We did have a few days of sunshine, plus some really nice views of great fall foliage.
