Tyler Tales: 14 down; 34 to go

August 20, 2012

Earlier in the summer my son, Tyler, decided he wanted to hike all of New Hampshire’s 4,000-foot mountains.  He started with Mt. Hale on May 18, 2012 and has since summited 14 mountains; the most recent being Mt. Jackson on August 18, 2012.

In between his quest for New Hampshire’s 4,000-footers, Tyler and his girlfriend also squeezed in a 3-week camping trip to Nova Scotia where Tyler hiked the entire 185-mile Cabot Trail in Cape Breton National Park.  Tyler promises photos soon!

Here are a few photos from Tyler’s hike up Jackson (4052-ft.) on Saturday.
