Earlier this fall, on a rare wedding-free-weekend, I traveled to Mass/New Hampshire for a weekend getaway. One of my childhood friends resides in Boston, plus I’ve become good friends with one of my wedding couples (who were married in Italy in 2013!!) who also happened to have moved from Minneapolis to Boston. While my friends mostly worked, I spent a couple days wandering the city and eating at the most amazing vegetarians spots (like here, here, here and here), then we headed out for a weekend trip in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. We hiked Mount Lafayette, one of the highest peaks in the range, which has a 3900′ elevation gain over 4 miles, with a 5249′ summit. It was challenging, but the reward at the top was pretty amazing!
