Mike, Jon, Rick, Rich, Stephen, Carlos, Ram, Tedd, Jim, James, Doug and Anthony hiked up Mt. Sunapee (2,726') last Saturday.
We went up the Andrew Brook Trail - it went to Lake Solitude. We hung out at the lake for awhile to soak up the views.
We then pushed on to the summit because White Ledge was too crowded. The highlight from the top was the great view of the lake with the fall foliage and this distant view of Mt. Moosilauke and Franconia Notch. We had lunch on a picnic tables on the deck of the summit lodge.
We then came back down and soaked up the sun at White Ledge above Lake Solitude before heading down for good. It was about a 7 mile round trip hike and took about 5 hours, including all break time, which was about 2 hours worth, so this hike was extremely easy. Here are some pictures.
