New England 67

New England is home to 67 high peaks (mountains that top off at 4,000 feet or more). For the past several years I’ve been backpacking and day hiking to the top of each one. Along the way, I’ve encountered soft forest paths that spring underfoot and unforgiving granite; views for miles and socked-in peaks; sweltering heat and sub-zero temperatures. There have been rolled ankles, blisters, sunburns, bruised knees and shins; thigh-deep, take-your-breath-away-cold water crossings; and a couple of face plants. It’s been a remarkable adventure filled with lots of laughter and a few tears. I’m grateful for the incredible friends I’ve made on this journey and for the moments I’ve shared with my husband and sons.  Here are just a few of my favorite memories from this three-year adventure:
