Climbed mt Monadnock with the scouts this weekend. Beautiful fall day although the leaves had not turned as much as I expected. Route up was pretty crowded (2nd most climbed mountain in the world….). Cool in the morning, 5 layers on. Halfway up, went down to one layer, it got pretty warm. Then on top, back down to ~35-40 degrees and 25mph winds – back on with the layers 8).
On the way down we took the Lost Farm trail, and saw almost nobody. Got buzzed by two WartHogs A-10s, came over the summit (<500 feet?!), gave us a barrel roll. Pictures here, route below.
