 10-28-06 Cabot NH
Date(s) Hiked: 10/28/06

Trails(s) Hiked: Bunnel Notch, Cabot Tr, "Oh my god they killed kenny" KilKenny Ridge tr.

Total Distance: 9.8 mi RT

Difficulty: nightmare

Conditions: Wet deep heavy unbroken snow with high speed wind.

Special Required Equipment: high waterproof boots would have been nice.

Trip Report: This was a pretty miserable slog I would say. From 3000'+ the snow was deep wet and unbroken. I got absolutely soaked here despite the above freezing temperatures I felt very very cold. The snow made the ascent very tiresome. I had a nice big wad of melting snow wang me on the head near the summit! Nice shelter near the top though! For the full report as well as pictures go here: http://hoosactunnel.net/nonhoosac/NH/Cabot061028

This was #46!!

ya that is a really cool store, If inhibitions wrent in place I could easily spend a lot of dough there. I got the East Branch & Lincoln Logging RR book from there -- that has been on my "to buy" list for a while now. :)

I compiled a list of reccomended books off of Views From The Top and have been working my way through it slowly. A LOT of good suggestions came from that thread. Steve Smith and the boys over there are the cats meow and more! I too could easily spend a small fortune there and not walk away with all I want!!!!! :twisted:

Nice TR Marc...Bill and I did Cabot 2 weekends ago. We were surprised to find 6" of new snow. We came down Bunnell and it was wet and sloppy then too. I had to laugh at your pic of the hut I didnt even realize it was green it was so windy up there the hut was covered in ice.
