Whiteface and Esther
by Kathleen Lisson
My best friend Kristin and I climbed Whiteface and Esther with the Hiking Mates on June 7, 2008.
I remember the hike being REALLY long. As I finally hauled myself over an obstacle to the summit of Whiteface, I heard the crisp sound of a beer being cracked. A bunch of non-hikers were enjoying themselves. I was sweaty and dirty, they had just driven up in a car.
We got a little lost trying to find the summit of Esther, but we got there!
I used to hike in a digicam hat I bought from an Army-Navy store.
