With the recent passing of my partner in crime and best hiking buddy Riley, I haven’t been out lately, nor have I even been able to look at my hiking gear without feeling emotional.

I first learned about this hike a few weeks ago. My family and a few friends had planned on participating in Kids to Parks Day 2016 with a trip to the White Mountains.
