|Lost and Found:
What an awesome day. Cheryl and I have been traveling the US for the last 10 months, so it was great to get back and do an adventure in NH again. If you have never been to the area. The summit is view-less with trees. There is a view of Mount Sunapee and Lake Sunapee on the way down to the cave. It is a little steep getting down to the cave, but we had no problems. The cave, it is believed, is more of an undercut cliff caused by glacial scouring, but very cool. Someone at some point looks like they chiseled the name of the cave on the back wall. There is also forklore about Daniel Webster spending the night in the cave with his sheep. We did make our usual video of our adventure on YouTube for anyone who might be interested in what it looks like and the trail conditions. Just click the link...
