The Outdoors Club poses at the summit of Mt. Moosilauke

Watching the sun filter through the clouds from an elevation of 4,802 feet is not an everyday experience — unless you're part of the Outdoors Club, that is. Last Saturday, we hiked Mount Moosilauke in New Hampshire's White Mountains. It was a tough four miles up to the top — at least my legs certainly thought so — but there were moments when I stopped to think to myself, "This is incredible." The roar of a waterfall kept us company as we climbed, a grassy clearing at the peak made me feel as if I was in an adventure straight out of "The Lord of the Rings," my breath was visible in the brisk air — all of these things made for a refreshing change of pace in my Connecticut College experience.
