Day 27

From Eileen: Rick traveled back up to New Hampshire this afternoon in preparation for what might prove to be the most challenging segment of his journey so far. Friends from near and far are assembling up in the White Mountains of New Hampshire for a three-day hike along the AT that will end at the summit of Mt. Washington. Mt. Washington is the highest peak in the Northeast at 6,288 feet, and is known for its extreme weather conditions. From the summit they will descend the mountain via the cog railway. I am so grateful to these wonderful friends who are hiking with Rick to support him and his goal to end ALS, and to the Appalachian Mountain Club for helping us to plan for this hike.
