Trip Report: Mackie and I took showers this morning then hit the grocery to load up on food for the hike. We were packed up and ready to go by noon and took three cars to a late breakfast with Terry and Russ. Terry left for school at UNH-Plymouth after we ate, and the rest of us drove to Lafayette Campground to drop a car. From there, we shuttled the other vehicle to Kinsman Notch and started a 15+ mile hike at 2pm. There was a lot of climbing to get over the mountain and back down to the shelter. We did seven miles in rough terrain but made it to the Eliza Brook Shelter by 7:30pm. Russ stayed in the shelter while Mackie and I tented across the brook as the AMC group had most of the choice tent sites. I enjoyed catching up with Russ and Terry today.
