Ascent Trip Report

This was my first hike in New Hampshire. I went on a trip with the MIT outing club for Grad Student orientation. I don't remember the trail we took. Having just moved up from Texas I was surprised at how cold it was at the summit.

Edit: Looking at photos, I'm guessing that we took the Piper Trail up.
