That's what I'm thinking! There's no harm in trying a hike or two in a new area. Worst case, I get some exercise and don't enjoy it as much. The Adirondack 46, the New Hampshire 48 and a few in Vermont, Maine and the Catskills make up the Northeast 111. Doing all of them earns another car sticker/bragging rights. I'm 40% done, so I might as well keep going.
How did you like the Whites you did? Enjoyable?
