Hancock Campground, Tuckerman Ravine - page 3 of 3

After returning to the car, we drove to North Conway and stopped at a few shops, including Eastern Mountain Sports, International Mountain Equipment, and Zeb's General Store which had a large stuffed moose standing out front. We joked that it was me, who had turned into a moose from too much hiking.

On the way back to the campground, we saw a real moose slowly crossing the Kancamagus Highway just west of Conway. A number of cars had stopped to watch it, but we were too slow getting our camera out, so we didn't get a picture. We kept the camera handy the rest of the way back, but as expected, we didn't see another moose.

Day 3

The next day at the campsite, I helped Holly built a snow trench in a plowed-up mound of snow as work toward an outdoor survival Girl Scout badge. The snow was extremely icy and hard, so digging was a real chore. We settled on using a tarp for the roof because we didnít want to cut down any branches, and there werenít many fallen ones around.

Finally and reluctantly, we took down camp and headed home, stopping first at McDonald's in Lincoln to pick up something to eat.
