Hiking the New Hampshire 48
The White Mountain National Forest is home to 48 peaks over 4,000 feet in elevation. With heights ranging from 4003' to 6288', these New Hampshire peaks are known for their steepness, rocky terrain, and impressive views.
In 2010, Randy set a goal to be the first blind hiker to summit all 48 of the New Hampshire 4,000-footers during the summer hiking seasons by the year 2020. However, he quickly accelerated his pace. In 2012, he accomplished all 48 peaks in a single winter season — the winter season offering fewer challenges in terms of footing — and then on August 24, 2013, with his Dog Guide Quinn at his side, he completed his original goal of climbing all 48 peaks during the summer seasons, just 37 months after he began his quest.
