"Second (and technically Third as we climbed over on the way back) time up here. Headed out to Iroquois to get #17/46. Algonquin is such a beautiful summit, I had no problem doing it again. We took our good friend Roger with us for his first 5,000er and along with Iroquois, his 5th and 6th High peaks." - Algonquin Peak, UK-Ranger, Sep 7, 2018
"Was a great day for weather, Sunny with few clouds and about26c. Got a great parking spot at 8am @ the ADK Loj , Met a few friendly hikers along the way. Great long hike with the guys and seemed much longer coming back lol We did it" - Algonquin Peak, ramjet1963, Sep 7, 2018
"Epic climb up the Nelson Crag Trail to the summit. Since we took a little longer to summit than previously hoped for, we ended up taking the hiker shuttle down to Pinkham Notch" - Mount Washington, HikeLikeMike, Sep 7, 2018
"Used the cog train to get to the top (time restrictions). Went part way down the mountain then back up during the short 1 hour we were allowed at the top. Will return one day to do from the base to the top." - Mount Washington, donizen, Sep 2, 2018
"Very cold and windy up at Mt. Washington. Still packed full of people and didn't have the time to wait for a summit sign photo. Too many tourists and I wanted to make it to the Lakes of the Clouds Hut in time for dinner." - Mount Washington, dmcosker, Aug 23, 2018
