We've been busy the last few days, seems winter arrived earlier than expected. Or at least earlier then I expected...note to self next year service the snow blower before it snows. Three days of shoveling to keep the driveway clear only to have temps in the 40's and rain in the forecast. Should have just waited it out. In the mean time we have been working on a few things so we are ready to accept reservations on January 1st. The biggest change will be our new reservation service. We felt the old service did not meet our guests needs, particularly the lack of a calendar showing availability. This along with other issues we had on our end have been addressed and we hope to be up and ready to go in less then 6 weeks.Another change we are working on is Wi-Fi and TV options. We are very limited as to what provider we can use, and by "limited" we mean we have only one provider. We have found the demand for better Wii exceeds that for cable TV. Right now our plan is to drop cable and offer better Wi-Fi which would allow for guests to "Stream" from their own services. We have smart TV's so you can plug in your own Roku, Apple TV or Fire Stick. We are also looking into providing Chromecast or Roku for our guests. We will, of course, continue to provide DVD's and players upon request. We may only be "open" for 16 weeks, but we're always "working" or so it seems. ... See MoreSee Less

We finally finished all our work last Friday so for the first time in almost five months we slept in. Not really, Marcy and Porter were still up by 6:30 and so were we. What made this day different was we had nothing to do. No cabins to clean, no breakfast to serve, no emergency repairs, so we had big plans. First a big breakfast at the Lumberjack Inn then a hike. We wanted something new that offered great views. It also could not be too long as we had to leave Marcy and Porter at home. Marcy can't climb anymore and while we hate denying Porter the opportunity neither would be happy if they were seperated So we wanted to be back at a decent time. We chose the Nun Da Ga O Ridge, also called the "Soda Range" ; it can be found in Hurricane Mt. Wilderness near Keene. It's a loop that is accessed from either the Crow Mt. TH on Hurricane Rd, or Hurricane Mt. access on O'Toole Rd. I recommend the latter as it has more parking and does not require a road walk at the end of the day. The downside to this TH is it is a seasonal road. It's packed gravel, very narrow with blind curves. Go slow and keep a watchful eye and you will be fine.We chose to go clockwise and added a side trip up Big Crow Mt. It adds about a half mile with some steep climbing but well worth the effort as you have great views of the High Peaks.While the trail for the Crows is well marked (Red) the loop is not. We saw no trail markers once we left the intersection. It is a well worn path but the fallen leaves and open rock ledges require a shape eye at times. You are climbing steadily right from the start. You will at times break out of the trees to find yourself on open rock ledges with views to the mostly south and west. But at one point we found ourselves looking north with a snowless Whiteface looming in the distance,. The final push to the top of the ridge finds you working up and over an impressive rock face at about the 2 mile mark. We arrived at this point just around noon, so we stopped for lunch and to enjoy the views . The firetower on Hurricane Mt was visible as well as the lower Range, Dail, Nippletop and I think Marcy way in the back.It was here we decided to head back the way we came (2 miles) instead of finishing the loop( 4 miles) as we didn't want to get back too late. We ended up doing 4 miles for the day. It was an absolutely beautiful autumn day. But now it's time to add spikes or crampons, warm layers, gloves and hats to the pack till spring er...June. ...
