..different roads…

People take different roads looking for happiness. Just because someone is not on the same road as you, doesn’t mean they’re going the wrong way or have gotten lost –

Baldface Mtn

This is one of my favorite hikes in the White Mountains. It is a rugged, strenuous hike(at least for me) that is right along the ME, NH border. At the beginning of the trail there is a swimming hole, the Emerald Pool, and rocks you can jump from…the water is very cold or on a real hot day it’s just refreshing.  If you like to scramble over rocks, which I love to do, this is a hike for you. To do the whole loop South and North Baldface is about 10 miles. I really do love the White mountains, one of my favorite places to hike.-Jen
