From the interview:
“When I was a camper and staff member, we had the tradition to do Tuesday or Wednesday hikes. We made two trips to Mount Monadnock during the summer, and this was of course when the summer camp was eight weeks long. The first trip would be up by the Halfway House Trail, where you could literally drive halfway up the mountain. We walked up, and then Mr. Harrer came up with a truck and the bug juice and so forth, then we climbed the rest of the way up to the summit. The other trail we used was the Marlborough Trail. That was supposedly the easiest of all the trails. When it was time to come down, Mrs. Harrer would pick up a mirror and do a heliographing from camp. We’d watch for her flashes, and that was our cue to start down the mountain. We also went to Pitcher Mountain, or Blueberry Mountain, and came back with bucket fulls of blueberries, and we’d have blueberry pancakes the next day and a blueberry pie for dessert for dinner. ”
