Yesterday, May 14, 2012, I hiked Elephant’s Head. Located in Crawford Notch, right across from Mt. Williard.
Distance: 1.0 mile
Elevation Gain: 100 feet
Yesterday my entire family went for a hike. Initially it was just going to be my older brother and myself. We picked a quick, easy hike because we were short on time. Then my parents both asked if they could join us, and my younger brother dragged himself out of bed before noon (a great accomplishment) to take this hike with us all. The hike was easy enough for my brothers and I, but proved to be a bit more difficult for my parents who don’t get outdoors much. The trail involves some pretty steep sections of climbing, with some longer, flat sections in between. No rock climbing or scrambling. Just a straight-forward trail with some muddy sections to get your shoes dirty. The views from the top are pretty great! They aren’t 360 degrees, but they are still beautiful.
Also note the classic Mom pose: “I just completed a hike and I am proud”. :)
Next hike: Thursday, May 17, 2012 - Zealand Falls.
