2009 Flags on the 48!

2009 Flags on the 48 registration is in progress! Just learning of this event this year, I was hesitant to register as a cooridinator. But I decided to accept the challenge and responsibility and accuired North Tripyramid in Grafton County located near Waterville Valley. The event will be on September 12, 2009 from 12:00pm - 2:00pm on all of NH's 48 4000 Footers. It is great to see even the hiking community come together to remember America's most tragic and world-changing event 9-11. And also in honoring our soldiers who have and continue to fight for our freedom. To become a coordinator or join a group click on the links at the top of the post. Support our nation and enjoy the freedom of hiking in the beautiful White Mountains of NH! "Oh beatiful for spacious skies, For amber waves of grain, For purple mountain majesties, Above the fruited plains, America! America! God shed His grace on thee, And crown thy good with brotherhood, From sea to shining sea!" America the Beautiful

Crew List: Jason Morris (Peak Coordinator), Scott Lavoice, Tracey Morris, Jeremy Morris, Brian Philbrick, Ian Dubi, Brian Keane & 3 friends.

8/10/09 Update: I am excited to say that registration for this peak is full! Just waiting on some names for registration. It should be a fun filled day with a lot of climbing in the process! I have the rope purchased and will be getting the flag soon. Also a friend of mine Donna (Donna's Home and Office Improvement) is working on a pole that will be connected with cuplinks for easy set up and break down. Look forward to spending the day with what is turning out to be a great group!


  1. Very nice post! I will also be hiking that day to put up a flag. I sure hope the weather is excellent.
    we deserve some nice weather in New Hampshire. Americal is beautiful! Just this morning on my usual hike up Mt.Major in the Lakes Region, I sat at the top at 7:00 AM is awe of the white cotton clouds hovering over Lake Winnipesauke and filling all the valley. I was above it! Felt like I was looking from heaven! What beauty! Life here is only what we make it!

  2. I always look forward to this every year. Glad you are getting involved as well.
