It seems as if my Trusty Companion and I are trying to squeeze as much out of the last days of summer as possible -- which took shape as a chilly camping trip this weekend.
We spent a couple of frosty nights in a tent in the Crawford Notch area, enjoying meals cooked over the campfire, the solitude of being the few hearty souls at the campground and the welcoming in the change of seasons.
Perhaps the highlight was having TC introduce me to another new activity: Hiking.
Turns out, hiking is a great workout. Not only does it work your legs and provide a decent cardio challenge on the way up, there's a great payoff at the top.
The views are spectacular, the sense of accomplishment is notable and the fresh mountain air can't be beat.
Here are a few pics of what I hope is the first of many cross-training days in the mountains.
