We had the honor of accompanying our friends Amy and Hartman on their first 4K! Seven-year-old Hartman and Amy, Hartman's mom, have hiked many smaller New Hampshire mountains over the past couple of years, and now Hartman feels he's ready for the 4Ks. We were thrilled to be there for his first 4000-foot summit -- he hiked like a speedy pro and then wanted to tackle nearby Mt. Webster before we descended to the parking lot.
This was a fun day and we hope to hike with Hartman and Amy again soon. I'll let the pictures do the talking -- notice we had jellybeans on Jackson's summit, thus continuing our quest for Desserts on the 48! :)
This was Alex's fourth and Sage's third time on Jackson (and their second time on Webster).
