    Thanks so much for the thoughtful reply. I think at this point we're set on Camel's Hump, but we appreciate all the advice and suggestions. Less than 3 weeks out til we're camping. Hoping for good weather!

    Thanks again

    So you are not going until the middle or late of September? That should be a nice time to hike and be up there. Be prepared for cold....maybe even frost overnight. As to hiking, even with Camel's Hump it is possible that weather could be nasty...as in snow, rain, sleet, fog, etc. Be prepared for that and be prepared to wait for the right day to do it or turn around if the going gets tough. Sounds obvious and maybe kind of paranoid, but every year it seems that there are lots of folks who get in trouble on Camel's Hump in particular. Just because one hikes a lot or has good equipment does not matter to Mother Nature. If the weather does not work out, go to Ben and Jerry's, Cold Hollow, Cabot Creamery in Cabot, etc. and don't risk it. The mountain will be there another day

    Thanks, we are heading up the 12-15th. We should be prepared for all scenarios/weather events, but will certainly exercise caution hiking the mountain...
