Ascent Trip Report

Final peak of a ten peak tour for the day. The first 9 were in southern NH. Arrived at the TH just before 7:30pm. I brought my head lamp with me in case I lingered too long at the top. Other than that, just my GPS, camera, car keys and my trail running shoes. A rare May nor'easter had started to arrive while I was on my way to Ashby from the Federal Hill fire tower so I wore my rain jacket and a hat as well. Nice views from the top despite the rain and clouds. Hurried down with minutes to spare before sunset.
