A few of my good friends will most likely be finishing the 46 this year! Brendan and I were planning on hiking Dial and Nippletop today, but because it’s still mud season and the forecast looked grim, yesterday we called it; we decided to stay close to home and hike Hadley Mountain. We’re both sort of hiking the Firetower Challenge and Brendan hasn’t hiked Hadley yet! It was my third time up this mountain.
I think we got our latest start yet–arriving at the trailhead at 4:30pm. We weren’t concerned, as it was about a 3.1 mi hike RT.
We made it to the summit just under an hour! The late start meant we had the summit to ourselves.
It was a nice night for a hike!

In other news, I finally completed my 46r “shrine”! Can you spot the cat silhouette in one of the picture frames? Too funny!
