Lessons in Layering

Some of our guests return to us over and over again. It makes sense to us: they are working on lists like the New England Hundred Highest, the Terrifying 25, the 52-with-a-View, or the 4000-footers and we provide security, guidance, even companionship — we’ve got your back — and so much more, really. And each trip is different — both guides and guests having gotten something […]

A Saco Lake Wedding

The plan was to meet in front of the Crawford Train Depot then hike up Mt Willard and perform the service there. Problem was the weather was so horrible in the parking lot — wind driven snow screaming past us sideways — that they couldn’t even fathom the idea of hiking up into it further.

Redline Guide Ryan Mcguire could have made it, anyway, in his Redline red Jeep Renegade, but he was worried the vehicle our returning guest was driving wouldn’t be able to handle the fresh snow. He had to think on […]

Conquering Moosilauke

They will peer into the mysterious bottomless abysses, admiring what they can only imagine, and they will note and relish the frozen, ice-covered rocks and plants close and all around them. And when it’s really thick up there, some will smile at nothing, for no real reason […] Quite a ways south and west of our location here in the Mount Washington Valley, hikers will find […]

One Year Later…

A year ago a New Hampshire couple decided to get married, the groom proposing to the bride on a snowy Artists Bluff situated as a prominence on Bald Mountain (2340′) located the northern terminus of Franconia Notch. Despite highway noises from I-93 running through the notch, and the potential for crowds, it is a stunning location with impressive views. Though do take note, however, in that […]
