Yesterday was a completely enjoyable one. My wife, daughter, and family dog hiked up 4363' Mt Oceola in the White Mountains of NH. It was a fairly easy 2hr hike on a glorious early fall day. When we got to the top, we were met with a stunning view to the east and off to Maine. A sheer cliff with about an 800' drop off meant that the dog needed to remain leashed. We sat and split a bottle of Flaio Negroamaro (an inexpensive, but tasty Italian red from Salento) with trail mix, brownies and apples--and enjoyed the view. The dog was unleashed on the trails, and was thoroughly exhausted by the time we got back to the car. He's still sleeping. We got home and after having some take-out, retired to the hot-tub. All in all, a great day, and the Alfa got to stretch her legs also, in the 200mi round trip to the mountain base and back. Wish I had some pictures to share, but the batteries in the digi camera crapped out halfway up the mountain.
