Mt. Waumbek ~ Jefferson NH
Three hearty hikers turned out to climb Mt. Waumbek (4006') via the Starr King Trail in Jefferson, NH. It was a day of peak foliage and dramatic cloud formations. Persistent gray jays pestered us for hand-outs while we ate lunch atop the Starr King summit. We then continued on for the short distance to the top of Mt Waumbek before making our descent. We were glad the downpour held off until we were en route home.
