I'm not much of a hiker... I keep saying I'll become a hiker but I'm not into the hike just to hike... I want a view of some sort...
Michelle and I have done two hikes since being here in New Hampshire. We wanted to hike once a week but there is a lot to do so it is hard to have time to do so.
We did a short wander with Michelle's family to The Basin. It really isn't a hike and I don't count it as one of the two we have done but thought I would share a picture anyways. :)
Our first real hike was Arethusa Falls. It is a mile down the road, about a 3 mile round trip hike to the tallest waterfall in New Hampshire.
Yoska and Michelle went over all the rocks to the waterfall.
Our second hike was to Mt Willard. A little shorter of a hike than Arethusa, not a very interesting hike but the view was Awesome! We hiked to the top and had a quick lunch we brought with us and hiked back down.
Michelle showing off. :)
There are a ton of hikes in this area. The AT is only 3 miles from where we are staying. There are 52 hikes with a view and 48 hikes that go to the top of the 4000 ft mountains in New Hampshire... Then there are hikes to waterfalls and swimming holes also. We would never have to hike the same trail twice. It's a bit hot for me now so we have been kayaking instead... Maybe some more hikes when it cools in the fall.
