Hiking the White Mtns 2015

   Rosco, Fireball, JB, Dipper, Sun god and Pack It In, all fresh and rarin' to go

   One KM to Go at some decent elevation

   Bruce and Wayne looking at Mt. Eisenhower

   Man wears a kilt, fanciest piece of kit he owns

   Wayne has never been lost, so easy to see from 2 kms, even in the fog.

   This stuff used to be so easy...

   I love waterfalls

   First swim of the week

   Day #3, some people are hurting

   Don't what sort of growth this is...looked quite creepy up close

   Just hang a left after the crevasse

   Fire Tower hike, just before the downpour

   Yes, I hike with an umbrella. What of it?

   You can't see the angle here, but the downhike was treacherous, all wet rock and mud

   A Walk In The Woods

   Like I said, I hike with an umbrella. No rain shell, so you don't heat up when climbing in the rain

   Getting to the top of Ammonoosuc, my favorite hike in White Mtns

   Ah, the Lakes of the Clouds hut...time for soup, check on the Gonzo licence plate whereabouts, and go jump in one of the lakes at 5000'. Snappy!

   Swim #3. Always a mental challenge to get in there.

   Gem Pool after the rain. Have swam here before, but not today.

   As the 'croo was at Sabbaday Falls, I had to hitchhike/walk back to the Farm. Little local colour

   Love the clutter

   If you see this man in the woods, run the other way

   Wayne actually working hard

   Lovely little waterfall over the mossy bank

   Love pictures at elevation, especially after a decent hike up

   Swim #4, coming down off Wiley

   What are you doing, Wayne?

   The 'pose'

   The Three Amigos

   Murphy adds a little color wherever he goes


   Ah, bubbles.

Kenduskeag 2015

   Zip Kellog (Bangor Daily News photo)

   Have you ever been to sea, Billy?

   Why do I know these people?

   Last known photo of Gimp's hat and dry clothes

   Play boats at Shopping Cart on Friday



   Up, again. How hard can this be?

   Hey! This is easy!


   How many years have these guys competed?

   First boat down thru Shopping Cart on Saturday

   Some talent there

   Trevor, on his way to the overall win...again...

   I love this photo

   These guys tried for the fattest part of the tongue

   ...and made it!!!

   So many clean runs thru Shopping Cart

   The guy in front has a better view

   ...and had good reason to be worried

   Bernie and Darren on their way to another trophy Century Class....wha..what!!!

   Kayak Cork

   So much for waiting for spills. Too much talent on this river.

   Yours truly in 2005, on way to 3rd, Kayak Short.
   One of 3 clean runs down this river, doing all the obstacles
