They actually had an adventure lined up, but their original plans got cancelled thanks to Covid-19 so they came to us. We were confident we could provide them the adventure they sought while keeping things safe at the same time. Provided the storm didn’t do them in.
They wanted a fairly low key adventure, with a focus on fun. Less so on gaining elevation. Something a little remote. Given all the possible options, we decided a trip through the dark side of the Pemigewasset Wilderness would be just the ticket.
Following the East Side, camping, moving beyond Stillwater Junction to Shoal Pond to camp — where they were for storm night. Luckily the storm passed fairly quickly, though what they experienced was pretty intense. Between Shoal Pond Trail and the storm, this was the most memorable day. They then hiked through Zealand Notch on day three and camped for yet another night. As a side tour, Nico led two of them to Zeacliff while the other two hung out at the Zealand hut. The final day saw a comfortable exit to Zealand Road. There was an option to hike more on that final day, but the gentlemen seemed satisfied.
Great lead, Nico. And to the team of gents, well done. Thanks= for choosing Redline Guiding.
