Ascent Trip Report

I wanted to check out the north peak of Temple Mountain before we went down, so we did.

The north peak has a communications tower on it. There was also a viewpoint where one could see Pack Monadnock, but fog obscured it. My Dad and I stopped for some water and then went back down the road.

After a few minutes, the fog lifted and Pack Monadnock revealed itself. That was one of the few views on this hike. The hike down was like the hike up; muddy and slippery. Eventually, we reached my truck and went home.
