Comments
Comments: Myself and some Hike-NH forum users raised a flag on West Bond for Flags on the 48 2015. Excellent day, great weather, views, and company! Was also nice to see the reactions of everyone who saw us and our flag equipment, as well as the flag crew. Never forget September 11, 2001...

I have posted a video recap of the day's hike for those who want a taste of what Flags day is like. T'is in the link...
