Today I finished my Sic Pack New England Challenge!  There were other hikes I really wanted to do, and in my mind I was going to get to all 11 mountains for New wheEngland.  But, thanks to life it was not meant to be.

Welch-Dickey was the closest of what was left to do in a day.  So up crazy early this morning to New Hampshire and at the trailhead by 8 am.  I had read some reports of the leaves being slippery.  I didn't notice that until my descent.  I loved this hike.  It was short, but packed a punch.  Straight up and straight down! on the way up I started thinking that it is a good thing I'm not afraid of heights, as this is not a hike for someone who has a fear of heights or falling.  There were a few spots where I felt that one wrong step and I would have gone sliding all the way down the mountain!

I went up Dickey and came down Welch and I think that's the better direction, at least it was for me.

Thank you Social Hiker for extending the challenge!
