Hiking Welch & Dickey Mountains

Preston went hiking in White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire. Mommy and Daddy picked Welch-Dickey Loop for this hike.
The hike starts out with an easy trail in the woods.
Then, it gets a bit more strenuous. Preston needed a little lift from Daddy sometimes.
The view at the summit is breathtaking.
Mommy and Daddy like this trail a lot. Welch-Dickey loop is not long (4.4 miles, 3.5 hour hike) but challenging enough to get a feeling of accomplisment. There are several open ledges providing spectacular panoramic views along the way. It is a great family hike. Preston has become such a good hiker. He led the way but always made sure Mommy follows closely.

Plus, you are lucky to have parents that loves the outdoors…mine are indoorsy people. I love your pictures…especially of the one of you looking after your Mommy. You are so caring and sweet!
