Delayed Post from 2015: 3 Day Hut to Hut Hike in the Whites (No. 27 and No. 28)

It's been 5 years since I've blogged about my hiking experiences. In that time, I've added another little hiking buddy to our pack. The big kids are big enough to start asking about starting on "mountains" and I've been taking the time to get them out on the smaller hills in our area. 

I had big plans to get back to hiking the 4ks but Covid-19 has made me nervous and I've heard too much about issues with crowds and out of state hikers in the Whites to head up to the "real" mountains. At the same time, while taking my kiddos hiking on the smaller hills and mountains local to home, I've realized I am not in prime hiking condition. So I've started working towards that goal. 

I've also been witnessing people doing some solo hikes, which I've been shy to do. I think I might get braver and start spending some time in the woods without my crew. The Big Dude has been struggling with carrying our littlest one but has done it with no complaint. He has said there's no way he could manage a proper mountain carrying TB on his back. 

Since it's been 5 years.... Here's photos from the last draft I started of my last big hike in the Whites. I went with my Girl Scout Troop and co-leader. It was a rainy start but a fun hike. I had ditched my husband with Little Dude and a baby who we now call Adventure Girl. I hope to start blogging about my adventures with our trio of kiddos soon. Enjoy the photos.
