       Hiking the Grid

Mahoosuc Land Trust "Into the Woods" Speaker Series

48 peaks in the White Mountains reach an elevation of 4000 feet or more.  Many hikers have climbed all 48.  A considerably more ambitious goal is to hike them in each month of the year.  Doing the math, that's 576 ascents, in deep-freeze to black-fly conditions.  Garret Bonnema of Bethel is one of the few who have achieved this goal, known as Hiking the Grid.  On Wednesday evening, February 17, Garret will share his Grid adventures at the Shelburne Town Hall, beginning at 7 p.m.

This event is co-sponsored by the Mahoosuc Land Trust, as part of its "Into the Woods" speaker series, and the Shelburne Trails Club.  The Shelburne Town Hall is located at 74 Village Road, approximately 16 miles from Bethel.  Village Road parallels Route 2 on the north, and can be accessed directly from Route 2 or from Meadow Road, which is a lit intersection.

Light refreshments and a time for conversation will follow Garret's presentation.
