Cold River Mini Concert Series Featuring Cormac McCarthy – July 27th

Cormac McCarthyJACKSON NH – Cormac McCarthy’s release of this fifth recording, Collateral, sends out to his listeners the highly anticipated follow up to his release Curious Thing. The new release, for Cormac, provides a very fine recording featuring outstanding studio musicians. Collateral is the product of a mature writer, musician (with his own work on guitar & harmonica), performer, humorist, and family man. No quality is lost on this album and it is clear that the art comes from the life of a man who has turned a kind heart and a keen eye towards the life around him, and shared it with us all through talents seasoned by fan pleasing shows around the country.

McCarthy’s has also recently re-released his first self-titled, self-distributed recording which contains so many of the gems that are often requested by Cormac’s loyal New England fans. The CD, Cormac McCarthy, is often referred by a stunning signature ballad, Friend of the Family. Continue reading Cold River Mini Concert Series Featuring Cormac McCarthy – July 27th

Lodge to Hut: Mount Washington Hike and Overnight June 7,8 & 9

amcPINKHAM NOTCH NH – Join an AMC Outdoor Guide on an attempt to summit New England’s highest peak, Mount Washington. At 6,288′ the “rock pile” should be on everyone’s bucket list. Often underestimated due to its low elevation for a summit above treeline, and it’s relatively short mileage. This challenging hike may be difficult for some to accomplish in one day, so we will take advantage of Lakes of the Clouds Hut and spend the night, hiking back down the next day.

With an experienced AMC Outdoor Guide you’ll hike at a moderate pace to Lakes of the Clouds via the Ammonoosuc Ravine trail. We’ll stop at the hut for a rest and lunch. With lighter packs we’ll continue up the 1.5 miles to the summit of Mount Washington. We’ll explore the summit, take pictures on the “rock pile” and hike back down to the hut for the night. After a well-deserved dinner and evening program we’ll take to our bunks for the night. Continue reading Lodge to Hut: Mount Washington Hike and Overnight June 7,8 & 9
