Well, my streak of rainy day hikes continues. It was raining pretty steady when we reached the trailhead for Mount Carrigain. A few in our group decided to bail then and there. Ed, Warren, and myself decided we would at least do something small. We decided to head over to Mount Tecumseh. On the way it stopped raining, and we decided to hike Mounts Liberty and Flume.
Given the rainy weather, I left my camera at home today. We made our way up to the ridge. As we neared the summit, we met the New Hampshire Chapter who was out on their 'winter' workshop. What little snow was in the Whites has melted with the unseasonably warm November temperatures. In the group, I knew Denise, Stacy, and 'Whip'.
We summited Liberty and then headed over to Flume. We had brief periods of snow, but no accumulation. Once on Flume we met two hikers named Shannon and Rob. We introduced them to the Grid. Shannon took our picture using Warren's camera.

We returned over the same route with the exception of a short bushwhack at the end which trimmed .5 miles off the return trip. For a rainy day, we still had a great hike and managed to stay dry all day.
