Did a day hike up Mt Mooselauke yesterday 8/30/12.  Hiked south bound 
on the Beaver Brook Trail (AT) then returned along the same trail.  I 
forget how difficult that trail continues to be.  Met 7 thru hikers 
on their way north.  One, an Englishman was stopped by the side of 
the trail having a spot of tea.  Two guys and a gal were leaving 
Kinsman Notch just as I started my hike.  I met Keystone as he 
descended from the summit and a couple of other guys.  Sorry, I 
didn't remember any other  Trail names. There was a group of 10 
Darmouth College kids hiking to the summit from Ravine Lodge along 
the Ridge Trail onto Beaver Brook Trail.  One of the girls wanted to 
know if I was carrying ski poles.  She claimed she had never been 
hiking before.  My knees were screaming by the time I reached the 
flatter section of the trail just before the parking lot.  Absolutely 
clear sky but very strong winds as usual at the summit.  Great day on 
the mountains.

Life is Good!!!
