Frankie's favorite part of our frequent hikes at Clark Reservation
is all the scrambling over rocks, so when it came time to select his next Adirondack hike, Mt. Jo seemed like a good choice: it's short and sweet with lots of rocks to climb. Before leaving for the holiday weekend in Keene, Frankie and I sat down and looked at photos of his previous Adirondack adventures. Erwin and I had already been talking up the hike for a few days, but I wanted the visual reminder that the mountains are different from our local hikes. Looking at the old pictures from Owl's Head also reminded him of 'Murfy, so the smurf came along on this hike, too.
