It’s been years since we climbed, so we returned to Mt. Monadnock on July 5th. It was a perfect summer day, sunny and not too hot. But the climb (1,000 feet or 305 meters) and descent were a little tougher than we remembered. Come to think of it, it was probably about 20 years since our last climb! That could be why.
Well, the views and pictures were worth the wear and tear on our leg muscles!
The path to the peak starts out as an easy walk through the woods:
