Comments
Comments: Lots of people out today, the weather didn't seem to deter anyone.

Today was the 5th annual Ryan Bishop Memorial Hike and friends and family numbered about 50 hikers. Light misty rain and wet trail didn't dampen our spirits. Up Winslow and down Barlow was the route taken by most of the hikers. No view today but we enjoyed the company and a big barbecue back at the Park's picnic area. Nice to meet the founder and director of the Kisamet Rock Foundation today and to learn more about what the work the Ryan Bishop Scholarship has accomplished. Who knows what NH peak we will meet again next year to continue to share Ryan's spirit for adventure--Climb for Bishop.
