Mount Pierce

I’m a prairie boy from Winnipeg, Manitoba. Part of the reason I am so fascinated with topography is that where I spent the first twenty-three years of my life, there is very little of it. When my family recently visited Montréal, we decided to rent a house in New Hampshire, and appreciate the joys of the mountains together. Unfortunately there was a bit more snow on the trail than we had hoped for, but the weather was more amicable than I have ever seen in the Presidential Range.

Our route followed the Crawford Path to the summit of Mount Pierce, and did a lollipop loop past the Mizpah Spring Hut
