Hike: Carrigain Loop

Hike: Carrigain Loop

My friend John completed his New Hampshire 4000 Footer list with Mount Carrigain. Our friend Michael and I joined him, his two daughters and his dog for the hike. John, Michael and I started hiking together seven years ago with their first 4000 Footer, Wildcat D. John and Michael joined me for the completion of my 4000 Footer list in 2017, and John and I joined Michael for his in 2018, so it was only fitting that we were there for John as well.
