Compelling armchair reading –

New Hampshire’s White Mountains are perhaps the most formidable obstacle a long distance Appalachian Trail hiker can expect to encounter.  Each year reports come of fatalities within the range, most particularly on Mount Washington.  Repeated verbal and posted warnings often fail to deter tragic events.  I recommend you consider reading “Not Without Peril” by Nicholas Howe before you backpack the trail.
