Dara and I joined friends Lauren and Nick over Labor Day weekend for a three day hike through two of the 'huts' of the Appalacian Mountain Club: Galehead and Greenleaf. Our pictures just recently came back from the print shop (yes, Lauren used a 35 mm camera, which is one reason the images came out great). It was a beautiful weekend and the long hike from Galehead to Greenleaf on day two especially rewarding (I had hiked the entire 'hut chain' a few years back and remembered that this traverse, which summits Mount Garfield and Mount Lafayette, always takes longer than you might expect (in our case, over eight hours).
