Kinsman Trail – Siva’s Section Hike – Sept 15-16, 2012

Cool, clear fall weather greeted Siva, Dexter and me for this 2 day/1 night backpack trip. Siva needed this approximately 15 mile trip as part of her Appalachian Trail section hike; I looked forward to bagging South and North Kinsman. We started at the Beaver Brook Trailhead at route 112 and finished at Lafayette Campground in Franconia Notch. Siva loaned me Dexter’s Hennessey hammock to try out. It was a cold night for a hammock but I did appreciate sleeping off the ground.
