Above The Nubble

In September 2010 I spent about ten days in Boston and there learned to know Alex. He was an eager mountaineer and hiker and used every opportunity to get out and draw some fresh air in the nearby White Mountains. He was also a tourleader in Appalachian Mountain Club, and when he a few days later organised a two-day bushwhack hike in White Mountains I got the chance to join that hike and thus spend the weekend with him.
