Had a amazing time hiking Mt Moosilauke, this one is certainly a favorite. Overall the hike itself was easy, I was feeling a little under the weather starting out Saturday so we took our time and several breaks along the way. The summit was breathtaking, I have never seen such a large and open summit, it literally looked like a football field on top of the mountain. We spent a decent amount of time on the summit and watched the sunset, a little cold but the mini bunkers help a lot with the wind. Definitely plan on coming back here after finishing the NE67!

Beaver brook shelter was absolutely packed, as we had anticipated, so we pitched our Seedhouse on one of the nearby tent platforms prior to hitting the summit. The Lean-To ended up clearing out around dinner time due to the drop in temperature, however, we stuck with the tent as my boyfriend was super excited to test out our new Big Agnes tent. Unfortunately my Therm-a-Rest pad developed a hole at some point during the evening and deflated, my boyfriends a saint and insisted I use his. To say the least it was a very cold night for both of us, we spent the majority of the night playing cards and making hot chocolate. Even with the cold this was one of my favorite trips, truly beautiful mountain.
