Following up on prior late season Tuckerman Ravine trip reports Tuckerman Ravine: Because It’s There and Tuckerman Ravine: Because It’s Still There, I originally planned to name this post Tuckerman Ravine: Just Because. Because It’s There and Because It’s Still There are worthy reasons, whereas Just Because was not sufficient. Instead, I went in pursuit of realizing dreams.
After nearly ten years of longing for a pair of quality sea kayaks, we recently realized that dream with a pair of Eddyline Fathoms. The investment was substantial but the timing was finally right. People wonder why I have never skied out west despite being a die hard skier. Being a die hard skier does not necessarily mean being one dimensional. There is more to life.
So instead of sliding down snow, I found myself gliding across water. We found ourselves at Dog Cove on Squam Lake. We put in for a relaxing paddle amongst the mountains of the Squam and Ossipee mountain ranges. Long have I seen Squam Lake from the other perspective–it was wonderful to finally see the mountains from the lake instead of the other way around.
