Northern Presidentials, NH - June 2008

Madison Springs Hut with Mount Madison in the background. This is where the lazy asses who make a lot more money than I do stay. I think the AMC hut system is part of why the Appalachian Mountain Club, is nicknamed the Appalachian Money Club. But hey, for $100 a night, you get full service dinner and breakfast, 2 wool blankets, and a cot. Sweet deal! No thanks, I'll take my tent and down sleeping bag any day. But occasionally I do dream of only having to carry 10lbs on my back while traversing the White Mountains of NH!!! Actually the truth is, I'd love to do a hut traverse, but while the AMC loves cell phones, they despise dogs. On the flip side, the RMC (Randolph Mountain Club) loves dogs, but hates cell phones, you can guess whose huts we stay at!!!

These shots are an update from my 3 day weekend with Caney at the beggining of June. Additional photos can be seen further back in my photostream or by looking at the New Hampshire set.
