>Mt. Washington


A few weeks ago I headed up to New England for a sweet hiking trip up Mt. Washington. This is a hike I have wanted to do for quite some time, and even with looking for a reservation back in June, this was the first available night at the hut at the top of the mountain.

I started writing this post awhile ago and apparently never finished. And now I cannot remember all of the important details so the short version is:
I hiked Mt. Washington
I went up Huntington’s Ravine. It was mad hard and I thought I was going to die at some parts. Lots of danger. It is a good job that I remembered to bring my new water backpack with me as staying hydrated was essential. Hiking up a mountain is thirsty work. I will definitely be taking my backpack with me on future hikes.
As you can guess, I didn’t die, the summit was awesome. Lake in the Clouds was also awesome. Nothing like sleeping in bunk beds with 100s of other people.
It was an awesome trip, would definitely recommend the adventure to anyone! Let me know if you are going on any hiking trips anytime soon.
