Mt. Monadnock

Answers to the guessing game:

1. Mt. Monadnock, New Hampshire

2. Outdoor mass at St. Peter’s Festival in Gloucester, Massachusetts

3. The view from Oratoire Saint-Joseph du Mont-Royal in Montreal, Quebec

(More posts on #2 and #3 to come later)

Mt. Monadnock is the 2nd most climbed mountain in the world (#1 is Mt. Fuji, if you’re curious), and there were definitely a lot of people there.  We picked a fairly quiet trail though.  M walked off the mountain with 3 ticks on his legs and I had more mosquito bites than I could count.

We decided to cut our trip short and get ice cream instead of camping in the mosquito infested bog.

But first a stop at this swimming hole (above) to cool off and remove the ticks, then a stroll through small town New Hampshire (below).

 

 

  

We finished our Memorial Day at the Cathedral of the Pines, a breathtaking outdoor cathedral for meditation and worship in the mountains.

    Very cool! I’ve never heard of this mountain! How high did you climb? I’m really missing the northeast right now —
