Redline Guides Go West

Taking some time off from the rigors of guiding, Redline Guides Ken Hodges and Álvaro Marques, along with eight others, recently enjoyed a little mountaineering climbing not one, but two iconic Pacific Northwest mountains. First in Oregon, they cut their teeth on the 10,358′ South Sister. This climb helped them acclimate. They then headed to Washington and took on and summited the 14,410′ Mt Rainier where […]

Hut-to-Hut “Presi”

Another one in the books, a custom hike our guest, Tom, will remember for years to come: an amazing, incredible-weather “classic” — meaning from Madison to Pierce — Presidential Range Traverse. This tour was led by Redline Guide Arlette Laan. To manage this feat, we opted to offer a “Hut-to-Hut” Traverse utilizing the AMC’s Madison Spring Hut for the first night, then the AMC’s Lakes of […]

Seven Principles of LNT

LNT stands for Leave No Trace. A simple premise, no? We think it is. Leave footprints, take photos. Easy peasy, right? Yet it may be more involved than one might realize. At the heart and core of LNT lies Seven Principles. These are shown below with a brief summary of each. As you read on you’ll realize each and every one of them is logic-based and […]

Finding the Wilderness

Compared to other national parks and forests, the White Mountain National Forest (WMNF) is small. Smaller still are the Wilderness areas within its confines. They’re there, though. Six of them! And they are likewise small. Of the 107 million acres of designated Wilderness across the country — the bulk of which are, logically, located in untamed Alaska — only about 153,052 acres are located within the […]

A One-Day “Pemi Loop”

We enjoy reading the profiles on our Guides page. Seriously. They’re impressive reads by and large. If ever lacking inspiration, reading a few of those reminds us of what’s possible. In the hiker world, some of these people are rock stars. Even the humble beings who think otherwise, compared to most ordinary non-hiking mortals, they stand extraordinary. We’re proud they chose us and to be associated […]

NEHH Help: Vose Spur

Situated just a stone’s throw from the 4700′ Mt Carrigain — one of the New Hampshire 4000-footers — 3862′ Vose Spur is connected to the north and east is like a little sibling. It’s also one of the trailless New England Hundred Highest mountains requiring some bushwhacking to get there. Not everyone is okay with doing this solo (like Mainer Bob), especially with a loved one […]

To Go… or Not To Go

That is the question. It’s a question all hikers ask themselves before ever setting foot on trail. Or they should be asking, anyway. We didn’t hike yesterday for weather reasons — which is but just one of the things we consider. We were scheduled to guide a hiking trip through Huntington Ravine. Our guest had flexibility and so did we so we are working with him […]

Mt Washington Ascended

Seems like it was just yesterday (it was) when Redline Guide Ken Hodges brought a returning couple on a guided hike of Mt Washington. To maximize the hike by decreasing crowds and getting them above treeline more quickly — giving them a fuller, richer experience — Ken chose the Boott Spur Trail with the descent being via the Lion Head Trail later. It was warm and […]

Making Re-Newlyweds

Getting married is one thing. The love, the passion, the romance… all that chemical craziness going on in our brains. All that newness. “Wow, let’s do this!” Then the years pass and something happens. Couples get used to each other. A certain familiarity sets in. Sometimes, unfortunately, the love birds also get tired of each other. When asked if they’d do it all over again, sadly […]
