Every journey has to begin somewhere, and my quest to climb all 48 of New Hampshire’s 4,000 foot peaks began on Mount Moosilauke. It was a beautiful day shared with my oldest son before he left for his freshman year of college.  The views were spectacular from both the Moosilauke’s main peak as well as its South Summit.  One down, 47 to go!
