New Hampshire is almost in the bag. We did the most treacherous and challenging part without a hitch. We had no weather issues, no injuries, and no logistical challenges. As a matter of fact everything was fantastic.
We can't believe the heat wave the White Mountains have had since we have been back on trail. We are not complaining. Well, maybe a little. We sent all our summer clothes home. As the initial pain of Dad's passing seems to be subsiding I can see humor again. I've jokingly said that Dad is with Mom now and she is giving him a hard time saying, "You had to pass while our little girl was out in the wilderness. Send her some good weather so she can get home safely." Mom and Dad both were over-achievers, that’s where I get it, I think they over did the temperature for us.
NH has been so rugged and tough. We earn every step we take. But with all that work comes great views. We ended today with a gentle sloping, 2 miles. We are in Gorham, NH for a shower, laundry and resupply. Tomorrow we hit the trail bright and early and will see Maine in a day and a half of hiking.
