Gentian Pond - nice view, get to swim with the leeches to wash the
sweat off from the days hike.
Beaver Brook Shelter on the north side of Mooselauke - wonderful
sunrise and sunset looking east toward Franconia Ridge. (sun shines
on ridge at sundown)
Bryant Ridge - because it is so unique.
Cooper Brook Falls Shelter - Love that brook right in front of the shelter.
Eliza Brook Shelter - just north of Kinsman Notch. Seems so
desolate especially after the long up hill walk from Kinsman Notch.
Nice flat area with good water and close to a quick climb (for Nobos)
in the next morning.
