Alpinist Managing Editor Paula Wright is in Washington, DC, today covering the fourth annual Climb the Hill, an event organized by the Access Fund and The American Alpine Club to lobby Congress on a host of issues that are of particular interest to climbers, outdoor enthusiasts and people concerned with public lands.
This photo is of a subcommittee hearing for HR 3458 and HR 3879—the Recreation Not Red Tape Act, and Simplifying Outdoor Access for Recreation (SOAR) Act, respectively—as American Mountain Guides Association Advocacy and Policy Director Matt Wade, third from left, prepares to testify.
At the table with him, from left to right, are: Leah Baker, acting assistant director of resources and planning at the Bureau of Land Management; Chris French, deputy chief of the U.S. Forest Service; Wade; Robin Chiles, director of admissions and outreach for the Bold & Gold program at the YMCA; Matt Baker-White, acting director of Cottonwood Gulch Expeditions; and David Brown, senior consultant for America Outdoors Association.

A beautiful start to what should be a beautiful day around New England. Currently we are at 44F with nearly calm winds. Looking at neighboring valley locations, we are currently the "hot" spot in northern NH this morning as most are reporting temperatures in the 30's.

While you're visiting the Park this September, come see the incredible artwork our visiting artist, Hunter Law is creating.
Hunter is a rising, young artist now living in Bangor, Maine. Hunter grew up in the small rural communities of Monson and Dover-Foxcroft. He studied studio art at the University of Maine in Orono, is an avid outdoorsman, and paints acrylic landscapes showcasing the natural beauty of Maine.
This Saturday, he will be sharing his knowledge with visitors and have you paint along with him! All material to paint your own nature landscape will be provided. This program takes place at 5pm at the Kidney Pond Library.
Hunter will have two open studios during his residency. Stop by the Kidney Pond Library any time between 1pm and 4pm on September 19th to view his work. He will have another open studio on September 20th from 10am-1pm at the Millinocket Memorial Library.
We hope to see you there! ... See MoreSee Less

We met Rebecca at @oldmtncoffee post run getting her caffeine fix at the beginning of the busy season. She spent her Summer trail running in the Adirondack Mountains, kicking it in Keene Valley, helping to get the ADK Run Club off the ground and now she's back in Boulder, CO finishing her Masters.
Representing the Mountaineer up on Bear Mountain and doesnt look like a bad place to be hanging out. She swears she'll be back next Summer on a more permanent basis.
We've seen a huge influx of young mountain goers move to the area in the past few years and its awesome to see young climbers, trail runners, hikers, skiers etc making the commitment to the mountain life! The good life! ... See MoreSee Less
Representing from up in the flatirons! Well done girl.

Get up to see the Sword In The Stone this summer !
The Guardian Knight Awaits you with a nice approach hike to a perch, a staircase climb along a ridge carved with images of their order, from 1607, and a final pitch over a roof to anchors for a swing into the Vault of the Knight's Of Christ.
Vermont State Archaeologists confirmed the carvings on the waterfront leading to the mountain pass. I am working on getting a crew together to look around inside and photograph the interior for a film documentary. Anyone with Vertical Hauling/Camera Experience is encouraged to help.
Mount Washington Valley Ice Fest is feeling fantastic.
