Paradise Lost

Twenty minutes past eight and the Goon and I are all packed up and ready to go. We’re waiting for our friends who rolled into their room at about 1:15 last night. Going up to Carter Dome takes 4 hours one way. Should be interesting up high if it is blowing 60 mph at 10 degrees on Mt. Washington this morning.
The plan is to drive down to Rt. 16, find the Nineteen Mile Brook Trail for 2 miles, Carter Dome Trail for 2 more, then 1.2 miles south to the summit of Carter Dome at 4832 feet elevation.
I’m packing my headlamp.
