Vacation 2012 – North Sugarloaf

I climbed up North Sugarloaf - at the northern end of Crawford Notch - while we were up north this year. On the way up, I looked around for the old, open-pit mine up there. I had brought along a brick hammer, and managed to find some nice samples of both white and smoky quartz, as well as a couple of nice pieces of feldspar. Pretty fun! I also found somewhat down the hill a ways off the trail a big chunk of solid white quartz as big as my torso! It would have been awesome to bring that thing home to put in the garden, but it easily weighed a few hundred pounds - so not likely to fit in my backpack. :)
