Sunday - 1-27-2013

View of Mt. Washington (snow covered peak in the far distance above the frozen lake)
A good run in the early afternoon on a gorgeous day...sunny and brisk. KT and I headed SOUTH to Brookfield, NH, just west of the Wakefield border to summit Moose Mountain and explore the Evergreen Valley Snowmobile Club trails in Brookfield and Middleton.  Not as long of a run as we had hoped, but the first mile climbs almost 1000 feet.  We hit the summit and then some, as we bushwhacked around trying to find the trail down the back side.  We added on a half mile or so of wandering around in thick woods before finding the trail and heading down into Middleton, then climbed back up and around between Moose mountain's main peak and another smaller one off to the east.  Two counties (Carroll and Strafford) and 2 new towns for Kevin in his townbagging quest.  6.7 miles on his Garmin. Felt like 67.  1910 ft. of elevation gain.  1:18:00. Ran w/ the Microspikes....VERY icy.  See below.
