Food Themed Rounds of the NH48

The girls and I are doing more rounds of the 4Ks.  We enjoy hiking for the sake of hiking, of course.  However, why not throw in some yummy themes?  We like to eat tasty food, and mountains + happy stomachs = a perfect day.

Therefore, we are now casually pursuing what we call 1) Desserts on the 48, 2) Cheese on the 48, 3) Cakes on the 48, and 4) Pies on the 48.  We'll probably eventually throw in another theme or two.

Our rules -- same as the AMC's rules (must hike up and down on your own two feet), but with a delicious twist -- depending on the theme, eat a dessert/cheese/cake/pie with the same first letter and sound as the first letter and sound of the name of the mountain.

For example -- Carrot Cake on Cannon.

We'll post links to the trip reports as we check off each peak.

Hi Tricia! It was so nice to meet you and Wayne yesterday! Thanks for taking our photo. I'll put up a trip report this Monday evening and I'll use that summit shot in the post.

Hope you had an enjoyable rest of the day on the Carters, and I hope to meet you again sometime!
