Boston / Monadnock September/October 2011

Happy Almost New Year! It’s been a busy few weeks. I flew to California (NY –> OAK, OAK–>BUR, BUR–>OAK, OAK–>BUR) and then headed on from there to Wisconsin, and then finally back home, two weeks after starting. It was nice to see the cat again. But I made a mild , what’s that word, resolution last year to try and post at least one blog post per month, so here we have it! It’s just about time to wish all and sundry a happy new year, but before that, I’m going to put up this post about a trip to Boston in Fall 2011 🙂

Fall in New England

Let’s dig in, then

green bathtubs (and mt. liberty)

yesterday karate workout was keen. only me and dave and the three senseis, which meant they didn’t have to work on the ever-slightly-more-basic things they work on with the lower colored ranks. which of course meant it was bitch hard, but it was nice to get the attention. i mean, i love teaching, but still.

today , me and jake and benazeer went hiking. we were going to climb mt osceola, but jake being a bit or a doof, failed to check that the road that went TO the mountain was open yet, so instead we went back to my liberty. this is the same hike i attempted a while back. but today we made it to the top! 8 miles round trip, 3000+ feet of elevation gain to get to the summit of a 4459 ft mountain. some amazing views as well, which you only see right as you get to the top. the descent is pretty arduous though, and i was quite glad to get back to the car. there was still a lot of snow at 3500+’, which made for some “fun” once we got to nearer the top and especially the last .3 of a mile along the franconia ridge trail. the clouds rolled in about 5 minutes after we got to the top, so we only stayed at the summit for 15 minutes or so. and no one fell in to the brook this time.
