August


For the month of August, I decided to spice up the regular NH48 and include the additional 24 Trailwrights' peaks.  Further--because I like numbers and am weird--I climbed them all as "6-packs" in 12 separate days.  Some of these combos were pretty straight forward and made sense--Carters, Hight, and Lethe for instance.  Other days did NOT make sense and required a bit more effort--Cabot, Waumbek, Moriah, and the Wildcats for example!  Doing the peaks with this little twist proved to be a fun challenge.  Trying to figure out whether or not I want to tackle the September or October NH48 in 8 days...
