Course Title: Hiking NH 4,000 footers + White Mountain History
Great course! It brought back many lovely memories of hiking in the Whites.
Pete had personal experiences which made the topic of the day even more informative.
Course Title: Hiking New Hampshire’s 48 4,000-Footers (Fall Term 2022)
Exceeded my expectations. The videos were very informative, putting me on the trail, and seeing some of the views from the mountain tops. The lectures also provided useful information on the AMC cabins, trail safety and conditions of the trails.
Pete knew the subject matter inside and out.
