Hi Folks,

Maybe it is the chill in the air, the overall dryness or the shorter days, but assuredly the foliage has definitely popped over the past day or 2. I've been overwhelmed with work and music stuff so I haven't climbed this week, but I have been out enough to be able to appreciate what it's like out there right now. Of course the traffic is a mess with the leaf peepers everywhere, but that's just what it's like living in a tourist town.

I did take a ride a couple of daze ago to check out Crawford Notch, and it was pretty nice then, and I'm sure even nicer now. I took a few pictures of what will be ice climbs soon enough, and and a few other nice shots. It was a beautiful morning. Here's a few shots:
I've been so frustrated with not riding the mountain bike this summer that when I friend mentioned he was going to do our annual circum-valley ride, I just had to jump in. Surprisingly enough, the hands did survive the 21 mile ride and it was a lot of fun. If you're interested here's the Strava track and map:

YUP, still a 1, but likely not for long...

Mobile Version Of NEClimbs:
Up on one of the Mount Washington Valley's finest crags and want to know what that climb you're looking at is? Or maybe you're on your way up from Boston and want to check out the Ice Report for your upcoming weekend plans. Or more likely, you're at work just want to daydream about your next adventure. Well if you have a smart phone handy, you can get to NEClimbs from anywhere you have cell service. While it doesn't offer every single feature of the site and it's not an "app", in mobile form, it does do a whole lot and is very useful. Here is the live link to the mobile version of NEClimbs:

Check it out and if you have issues on your specific phone, please feel free to let me know.

North Conway, New Hampshire

Lightly hazed in blue mist, the tiny, clustered town - pale pebbles and mica flashes of light - was no more than stony shingle at the bottom of a deep pool.
