 Cruising up Cabot! 12/27/06
Wednesday was Doug A.'s #47 and it was on Mt Cabot in the winter! A perfect mild, winter day with magic in the air right from the start. Although 2 canceled, Doug, a self employed finish carpenter from Exeter, Fred, a retired electrical engineer from Andover, joined Ghost and me for a leisurely 10 am start. We saw the footprints in the snow of a man and I thought a woman who left the trail and bushwhacked to the summit! Later he accidentally locked us in the cabin and was startled to hear me say, "Hey, unlock the door!" He and his young son, said he lost the trail, climbed up, and with luck (?), re-found the top section of the trail. Geesh! We totaled 10 hikers in the crowded cabin, Alan C. a teacher from Laconia, who joined us in the descent and 5 young college men coming up to spend the night. A wonderful day to hike, meet, enjoy trail talk, and have great fellowship with 16 other hikers on a snowy, winter Wednesday on Mount Cabot. After the hike we went to the world famous Woodstock Inn where we dined, drank wassail, and had more fellowship in this very excellent and busy establisment. Another perfect day to play in the mountains with friends!

We ascended up the traditional trail.
The wonderful, easiest trail from town.
The one that is 3.5 hours up. 2 hours down.
40 minute max drive to the Woodstock Station.
Wassail for all. Except me who wassailed for hours!

- Happy wassailing to all!
:D
