Cannon Mtn.

Yesterday I got up bright and early and went hiking with Ben on Cannon Mountain in Franconia Notch State Park. It was a beautiful clear day and the trail was in great condition (it was the first time I've been mountain climbing this year when I haven't encountered any snow). We reached the summit in no time, even while taking a moderate pace.

Here are some photos from the trip:


Ben looking manly on the trail.


A view of I-93 from an amazing overlook near the summit.



A handy compass at the observation tower on the peak that indicates what mountain you're looking at.


Enjoying our time at the peak.

Dan also brought coffee to the top. It was hot when we drank it, and I discovered the wonderful invention called the vacuum tube!
