4802, Round Three

We've tried to make hiking Moosilauke a tradition, but we haven't been able to make it every single year. The last time we went was back in 2009, but we've been running and hiking a ton more this year, so it was only natural for us to get our butts up the mountain this year.

The weather was a bit iffy, so we blasted up and down the mountain in 3 1/2 hours in order to beat the afternoon thunderstorms.

As we've gotten more fit, we've been able to keep up with the dogs better. A year ago, we'd have taken a lot longer than 3 1/2 hours for a 7+ mile hike with almost 2500 feet of ascent and descent. This isn't the first time this summer we've defeated the Golden Retrievers, and it won't be the last.
