    Hiking on the AT

    August 19, 2017 in the United States

    I got up and went directly on the highway towards northwest. After 2,5 hours I came into the area of the White Mountains National Forest and there I met Jonas and Julia. Joni is a friend from home and Julia his mexican girlfriend. The baggage which I brought was for them and the sister of Julia lives in Wrentham. They are hiking on the Appalachian Trail (AT) since May this year and I was very happy to join them for one day. The AT is the longest hiker only trail in the world ranging from Georgia to Maine on the East coast and crossing 14 states. was the first time I met Julia, so we got to know each other and then we already started on the trail. As we were in a mountain area we had to get on a peak of course: the Mount Moosilauke (nobody knows how to pronounce it). The path was quite steep and slippery as it has rained the day before but we were fast and arrived at the peak (ca. 1400m high) after around 2 hours. The weather was ok, a little bit cloudy but warm. At the top there was fog first but then it got better. We ate something and went down on the other side of the mountain. At the bottom was a hiker hostel behind which we grilled some sausages for Hot Dogs and drank some beers for dinner. Afterwards it was already dark and we hiked to the next shelter which was a mile away. We crawled into the sleeping bags and slept.Read more

    The Kancamagus Highway

    August 20, 2017 in the United States

    When we got up Joni prepared breakfast for us three: Delicious scrambled eggs with bacon and for dessert we had avocados and a chocolate cake. Then we headed back to the hiker hostel where the car waited for us. We packed the stuff and I brought them to the start for their next stage on the way to Mount Kathadin (the endpoint of the AT). Unfortunately Joni forgot the water filter at the hostel so we had to return to get it and come back again. That costed us roughly an hour. After the farewell I had the plan to drive a detour back to my accomodation. I was driving on the Kancamagus highway which is a very famous recreational area within the White Mountain National Forest. As the weather was perfect lots of people had the same idea. I stopped at several viewing points and also did a small hike. At the end I came to the Swift river on which I wanted to relax a bit in the sun but there were so many people that I decided to hit the road. I still had many miles to drive anyway. On the way I got hungry and I stopped at a Five Guys restaurant - they have the best burgers - to enjoy my first burger here. Hopefully there are many more to follow :-) Then I finally arrived in Newburyport and strolled around this nice little town and had an ice cream. The sun went down and I prepared myself for the day after.Read more

    The White Mountains

    October 3, 2017 in the United States

    The next couple of hours took us up and through the White Mountains, so called because when they were first discovered they were covered in snow.

    The autumn colours are not yet at their best but hopefully as we move further North in the next couple of days things will change.

    Kancamagus Scenic Byway

    September 28, 2015 in the United States

    After some negotiating with the front desk staff, we were able to move to the more spacious studio unit with a full kitchen that we had paid for. Once that was settled we were on our way to scout out the area.

    "The Kanc" highway is a 55 km two lane, winding road through the White Mountain National Forest. It's a beautiful drive with many scenic viewpoints, waterfalls and short hikes. It would have been perfect if the leaves were at their peak. This area is known for attracting "leaf peepers" and is the main reason I had selected it. It was 26 degrees and sunny so we spent the whole day driving and exploring.Read more
