My son, Tyler, has always enjoyed hiking and has been a casual weekend rambler for many years. He usually hits the trails alone, but last week he decided to participate in a guided hike to Arethusa Falls with WVAIA volunteer leaders Dan Newton and Gary Moak, along with WVAIA members like Brenda Conklin. There were nearly a dozen hikers on the trek up to Arethusa Falls, which is one of the highest single-drop waterfalls in New Hampshire. Tyler really enjoyed the company and camaraderie and is happy to have found other like-minded outdoor enthusiasts to hike with.
Tyler’s new-found friends from WVAIA helped spark an interest in New Hampshire’s 4,000-footers; so, Tyler’s set a goal for himself for this summer: Hike all 48 of New Hampshire’s tallest peaks. Hmmm….that’s a lot of walking, son!
Here are a couple of photos Tyler took at Arethusa Falls.
