A New England family came to us looking for a 3-4 hour half day hike that was just right… meaning not too easy, and not too hard — a Goldilocks hike. Views were also requested, but they didn’t want to try out one of the common, often crowded peaks (can’t blame them). They wanted something special. These criteria are fairly typical so this was easy. We really know these mountains, having literally hiked all of the trails described in the White Mountain Guide Book, so we chose Pine Mountain from the Pinkham B Road end. For those who don’t know, this beautiful and deserving mountain was recently added to New Hampshire’s 52 With A View list.
In lead for this trip was Redline Guides Ken Hodges and Mike Cherim. The guides met the family at our Basecamp, checked everyone’s temperature and blood oxygen saturation levels, basically doing due diligence as it concerns Covid-19, then headed out. Here are some photos of the day… but first we need to get that “Jeremiah was a Bullfrog” tune out of our heads. This last part is inside humor just for the family.
Great lead, team, and to the awesome guests, congratulations… 51 peaks to go. Thank you for choosing Redline Guiding.
