Mount Field is the highest summit in the Wiley Range, a little higher than Mount Willey itself. Also, along with Mount Washington, it is one of two major triple divide peaks in the White Mountains--water flows to the Connecticut, Merrimack, and Saco Rivers from Mount Field's summit.

The peak was named after Darby Field, the first to climb Mount Washington and one of the earliest mountaineers in recorded history--there are not many accounts of people going off to climb peaks for reasons of curiosity and challenge before his 1642 adventure.

The summit of Mount Field can be reached by the well-maintained Willey Range and Avalon Trails, making it an easy day-hike from US 302 in Crawford Notch. It can also be reached from Zealand Hut via the A-Z trail.

Top of Mt Field. Hand-feeding the Grey Jay birds. Look closely and you can see it flying away up and to the right of my hand. Top is tree covered but there is a small clearing for lunch and escape the wind. Overlooks just off the peak look down over Mt. Washington Hotel and the valley (2014-09-27). Photo by Eric Ryherd.

Man of Steel opened yesterday, a much-anticipated reboot of the story of Superman¡¯s origins. The title character is played by British actor Henry Cavill, who appeared at the June 12 U.K. premier of the movie in London sporting a Tom Ford suit and an Omega Seamaster wristwatch. It has been reported that in 2005 Cavill was a contender to play the new James Bond in Casino Royale, which hit theaters in 2006. Apparently, the producers found him too ¡°young¡± for the role at the time, and it was given to Daniel Craig. This is interesting because both James Bond and Daniel Craig are Omega ambassadors, though both of their model choices generally fall in the sporty Seamaster direction. The version of the elegant Omega Seamaster that Cavill sports includes an annual calendar function. This replica omega Seamaster addition to the automatic movement displays day and date, and will only need to be manually corrected on March 1 due to the differing lengths of February. One very notable thing about the Seamaster¡ªand every other movement now made by Omega¡ªis that it contains the Co-Axial escapement invented by Dr. George Daniels and serialized by Omega over the course of more than ten years to make it perfect for use in a wristwatch movement. The finely finished movement can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back of this officially certified chronometer¡ªwhich means that the movement has undergone a series of grueling tests performed by Switzerland¡¯s Contr?le Official Suisse de Chronom¨¨tres (C.O.S.C. for short), a non-profit organization established in 1973 in Switzerland to certify accuracy. The version that Cahill wears is housed in a 41 mm red gold case that is water-resistant to 100 meters. On a brown leather strap it retails for $23,900 in the United States.
