Here’s a few impressions of our climb of Mt. Major today. It was a beautiful day, a breezy 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Lots of people out and about, young and old. We voted as a troop to go up the blue trail. The trail was easy at first, but it got a little steeper as we went up higher. Mt. Major didn’t keep the views of the lake and the Belknap Range a secret until the top, but instead gave us glimpses of the view to keep us moving along. When we made it to the top, we saw lots of mountains and Lake Winnipesaukee. We ate lunch and spotted a turkey vulture tipping it’s wings in the breeze above the mountain, and at least a dozen doggos. Our descent occurred down the steep, rocky orange trail. Although the clear stream running beside it was very scenic, I was glad we didn’t go up that trail. When we got down, we had some italian ice, rested and then some of us headed off to lunch at Pop’s Clam Shell.
All in all, a good hike. Would recommend.
