Here is a photo from today's hike of Mt. Monadnock, a 3,165 foot mountain, and the most climbed peak in the U.S. (The second most climbed mountain in the world after Mt. Fuji in Japan).
This is Frank Paolino on the left with Ed Sasena, another software developer of Anros Applications in Concord MA. We reached the top in 1 hour 45 minutes. Not bad for a couple of computer geeks.
Now, not to take away from our climb, but our own Dan Calkin (see arrow), looking for new ways to make the climb more challenging, once climbed the mountain with a group of friends and a canoe. (There is no water on the mountain, they did it just for the thrill).
I appreciate their bringing paddles and of course the life jackets for an added measure of safety.
