HIKING

Hiked 6288-ft up to the summit of Mt. Washington known as Home of the World’s Worst Weather.  It was thrilling, adventurous experience with breath-taking scenic beauty of White Mountains. http://www.mountwashington.org/

As Mt Washington is known for the home of worst weather condition. Once you reach up the summit you can experience bitter cold, dense fog, sometimes heavy snow and very windy. But it’s one of the popular and famous among the experience hikers. It’s also one of the highest peaks in Northeast region.

We booked our motel in nearby town Gorham. Early morning we grabbed our breakfast and started our hike around 9am as we wanted to hike up and get earlier to summit during the day light. We decide to hike up “Tuckerman Ravine Trail”.  We split our group in two (one group of guys and other group of girls). Guys completed their hike in 4 hours where as girls took almost 6-7 hours as we were hiking and enjoying the nature beauty as well. We got lucky to have the best weather temperature, it was up to 60degF until we reached up. Up at summit temperature was 32degF with 30mph wind. It was freezing at summit. But overall experience was amazing.

Picture would tell everything that how amazing our hiking was with beautiful weather as cherry on top.

! Walk For Hunger ! Walk For Cause !

Every year there’s this event take place in city of Boston “Project Bread – Walk for hunger”. Its 20 mile walk loop passing through different town of Boston suburbs. It’s always on first Sunday in month of May. I started walking for this cause since 2009, and being doing this consecutively from past 3 years.  It’s been great experience and very motivational when you walking with 100,000 people at same time starting from Boston Commons. I set limit of fundraising every year.

First year, I walked 10 miles. Second year, I walked 15 miles. Third year, I walked 18 miles. Next target is to complete 20 miles.

TIPS: Carry extra pair of socks otherwise there are chances of getting blisters on your feet. Also carry some cereal/granola bars to boost you during walk if you are hungry. Plenty of water will be provided on the way so don’t care to stock up with water. Also food will be provided half way mile stone. There are several tips on website itself.
