My BFF and I are off to hike the 4th highest peak in the White Mountains today! It's been too long since I've been on a grownup hike, so I'm very excited. We both managed to get the day off from our various responsibilities, so this is a rare treat on a weekday.

I'll post pics when we get back!

What do you like to do with friends when you get a day off with friends?

UPDATE: We made it! It was an awesome day, and a fairly challenging hike... Though it was only 7.2 miles, it was almost 3000 feet in elevation gain. There was some slow going, but the day was beautiful and we saw very few other hikers out. The views were amazing, and we also got to see some pretty spring alpine flowers! Here are just a few of the photos we took:

Can you tell I love the view? :) This was about halfway through the ascent.

Our lunch spot was this alpine pond.

This is a picture along the final ascent... It's not the trail, but the trail was just about this steep!

I'm hoping it will be a clear day so we do... A good amount of the hike is above treeline, so it should be beautiful. :) Thanks!

What are your go to activies when going out with friends?

Do you live near a lake or ocean? Boating, etc? :) I love kayaking and canoeing...

Thanks! I need to go pack lunch, I guess...

I have a lake home, kayak, and speed boat, but I am selling the house. We live near  a large lake region and ocean, we have found renting a house for a week at a time works better than maintaining two homes. Too much work!!!!!
