Comments
Comments: Mount Moosilauke, North Peak
Carriage Road

The weather on Moosilauke this day was fantastic, with lots of sun and some wind. The temprature at the top was very cool, but bearable.
My daughter Rachel accompanied me as this was her first time on this peak. On the descent, we did end up walking in darkness, but we have very good headlamps. I recommend to other hikers who may not have headlamps to buy a good quality one. We did experience one strange thing on the descent after passing the junction of the Snapper trail. about a half mile or so after the junction, we heard strange sounds behind us, we were not sure if it was a human yelling, or the howl of a lynx. We heard the sounds three times, then it stopped. Not sure what it was?
