Climbing Eagle’s Peak

My oldest son (Will) is a sophomore at the United States Air Force Academy. Each year the first weekend of September is Parents Weekend, and this year we decided to bring our other kids out with us. When we told Will about this, he suggested we make a family hike up Eagle’s Peak. So Mrs.I (Mary Eileen), Tom, Michelle and I spent the month of August climbing a number of peaks in New Hampshire to prepare for the climb.

Our climb went wonderfully: 2-1/2 hours up, 1-1/2 hours down. The pictures do more justice than I could ever tell.

Nice pictures! The last two look a little scary, looks like there is a vertical fall all the way down to the base level.

The top-most few hundred feet are a sheer cliff (visible in the first picture), but fortunately the trail takes you up through the cleft on the right, and you make the final ascent from the far side. Lots of hiking over rubble, but not a vertical climb.
