Grafton Notch Rd. to East B Hill Rd 10.3 miles
Total mileage 919.4
The morning was chilly, the fog was lifting and it looked like the sun was going to make an appearance today.
I was looking forward to climbing Baldplate Mountain. Maybe I should rephrase that, I was looking forward to the view from Baldplate. The view was amazing!
Although the climb up made me a little nervous. I was climbing on rock. All most of the mountain top was rock and some of it was wet.
There was also an abundance of ladders to descend, but I did well with them. I’m getting less fearful of them. But these were easier than the one I cried over.
I did have a fall today, descending some wet slate rock. For the most part I am OK. I skinned some skin off the palm/wrist on my left hand.
The weather was perfect. It was a chilly morning in the low 50’s to upper 40’s. Then warmed up to the 60’s. We did have some rain that started around 3 pm and it rained off and on until 7 pm. Luckily I was finished by then.
