Another great little hike with Mike.

Thanks Mike that was a great first hike of the season for me. 

This hike was a nice easy to moderate hike with fabulous views at the top. We were able to see Manchester NH and the skyscrapers in Boston. Looked as though we could see 80-100 miles. The weather was great, a bit breezy on top. 

It was awesome to see some old friends and meet new ones. 

Thanks again to Mike and Jon.
