We continue our hike with my Dad and Dale (Greybeard) who is currently hiking the Appalachian Trail in the hopes of becoming the oldest thru hiker at the age of 83! My Dad is also continuing his pursuit of hiking the whole AT in sections at the age of 72.

This section was amazing and also challenging with lots of rock scrambles and boulders to climb over. We hiked this section of the AT and then stealth camped just north of Galehead Hut on the AT. Then we hiked out on Gale River Trail to take a break and camp in a state park. Subscribe to see the continuation of this section hike!

This was a tough, but breathtaking day, 8 miles over 4 mountain peaks on Franconia Ridge. We met a new friend, Mimi, and continued our hike with Greybeard (Dale), who is hoping to be the oldest person to thru hike the Appalachian Trail at the age of 82, while my Dad, age 71, continues his pursuit of hiking the whole A.T. in sections, and has completed Georgia through New Hampshire!!! More New Hampshire AT and amazing views to come!!

This is the first day of our section hike of the New Hampshire Appalachian Trail, also called Liberty Springs Trail. My 71 year old Dad has been section hiking for a number of years and has completed from Georgia all the way to this point.

Also hiking with us this year is my Dad’s neighbor, Greybeard. He is thru hiking the AT this year and will be the oldest man at the age of 82 to thru hike once he completes it. He should actually be almost done now as he had already skipped ahead and done some of Maine.

The most up to date info is on Greybeard’s Facebook page: http://ift.tt/2akuzwD .
Also his youtube channel is displayed at the end of the video.

Early on the fourth day of the cruise we cruised past Endicott Arm Fjord, seeing lots of icebergs floating in the water, some with a resident seal, and then the saw the glacier, itself. The whole place was gorgeous!
