MAP : We'll have to come back to do The Eyebrow. It is said that it's better to do it going up, and we didn't want much of an adventure or longer route since there were thunderstorms forecast in the afternoon. 

ABOVE LEFT : I really enjoyed the speckled aspect of the trail. Even more so since we couldn't see the view because of the low cloud cover. ABOVE RIGHT : Nice place to take a lunch break. The falls are actually quite high, dosen't how on the pic.

SUNDAY,  August 5th 2018

30 mins drive to Trail Head.

CARRIGAIN MOUNTAIN White Mountains, NH / White Mountains 48/48  / NE109/115
With Gabriel
HIKING Sawyer River Auto Rd and Signal Ridge Trail. / start 6h15 AM total 10h30mins
Sawyer River Rd IN : 40 mins
Signal Ridge Trail UP : 4h35 mins
Lunch : talking with people and celebrating our 48/48 : 45 mins
Signal Ridge Trail DOWN : 3h50 mins
Sawyer River Rd OUT : 40 mins
Assent : 
3800′ of elevation gain + 500 ' on Sawyer River Rd
22 km including the 2 x 2 miles we have to add because the Sawyer River Road is closed to vehicales since October 2017.
TEMP
Sunny : start at 13°C; 20°C at lunch; 23° almost down
WATER 3,5 liters and I drink almost all of it.
WEIGHT OF PAC: 20 lbs I brought my river-crossing sandles but didn't need to use them,

ABOVE Sawyer River Rd closed : 2 x 2 miles more to hike. We find out 4 days before our already planned trip./ The road was almost completely restored by the time we went, but it was still closed.

ABOVE : according to what we read.. on a clear day, we can see 43 of the 48 NH 4000 footers. This is why we chose Carrigain to finish the NH4000s

LEFT :  4 DAYS AGO : Mountain-forecast.com hasn't updated the weather info since 7 am this morning, and we are trying to decide if we're going to do it this Sunday. We decide to go and we reserve bunks at White Mountain Hostel for 2 days.
3 DAYS AGO : mountain-forecast.com is all mixed up.. shows thunderstorms all day Sunday and is not refresshed. Other Forecast pages seem to say it's OK.
2 DAYS AGO .. all is good on mountain-forecast.com. Sunny on Sunday :) and the expanded version is back.

  

ABOVE :  It was warm and there was no wind, but it was very comfortable in the look-out tower at the top. People we crossed coming up told us that just an hour earlier it was quite windy and chilly. Glad we came later.
BELOW RIGHT : the closed auto-road is 2 miles of easy hiking.The trail crosses the Carrigain Brook quite a bit AFTER the crossing while on some older maps it still crosses the brook before or at the brook.
BELOW : On my FB page : "C'est fait! 48/48 dans les White Mountains! Une rando de 10h30 sur Carrigain, en partie ΰ cause d'une fermeture de route-auto qui a allongι la rando de 3,2 km, allιe et 3,2 km retour mais une journιe magnifique."
on the Aspiring NE 111 ERS Club "Another step in the right direction. Gabriel and I finished White Mountains 48/48 on Carrigain on Sunday (August 5th) . That's 109/115 !"
on the NH 4000 Footers Club
" for Gabriel and I, Carrigain on Sunday (August 5th) was a beautiful way to finish our 48/48. So many people were wonderufl to congratulate us. It relly felt great. "
BELOW : A little water in the hat before putting it back on really cools you down / I must say that I used a little LESS water LOL

BED AT 10h45 PM   White Mountains Hostel, Conway / Bunks #11 (2 singles and 4 bunks , sink in room, showers and washroom adjacent) / Interesting to meet Daniθle and Rebecca and alot of other hikers With all the "congrats" we get it really feels like a celebration .

Watching Tennis Will this be a historic game? / Nadal wins so not really but good week for Tsitsipas.

Rogers Cup finals : Nadal & Tsitsipas

"Tsitsipas, who turns 20 on Sunday, will play top-ranked Rafael Nadal for the title. After a two-hour rain delay, Nadal beat Karen Khachanov 7-6 (3), 6-4 in the evening semifinal.

Nadal said Tsitsipas has a great overall game and he will need to be aggressive in trying to move him around the court to gain control of the match.

"He's a complex player. He has everything. He's young. Has passion for the game. He has a great forehand, great backhand, good serve. So he's not about one thing. He's about everything," said Nadal.

"These kind of matches you need to play very well to win, and that's what I'm going to try."

With the win over Anderson, the 27th-ranked Tsitsipas became the youngest player to beat four top-10 opponents in one tournament since the ATP World Tour was established in 1990."
