I grew up hiking in New Hampshire's White Mountains. My Dad and I hiked all 48 of the peaks above 4,000 feet in the state starting when I was 8 years old with Mt. Jackson and finishing when I was 15 with Mt. Liberty.
The Whites were a great place to grow up and I was so lucky to get to hike with my Dad.
