Slices of life
Near a summit north of Franconia Notch on a November afternoon, a group of seven serious hikers, with several thousand peaks bagged among them, traded tips on curing post-peak hunger.
"Mooseland in Twin Mountain," said one, saluting the nearby Mooseland Grill.
Other suggestions featured the caviar of the north country.
"There's a place in Errol that has good pizza by the slice," said a guy fueled on Diet Coke and Butterfingers.
"Mr. Pizza, in Gorham," added another. And then, "The Upper Crust, in Tilton."
"GH Pizza, in Lincoln," came a final shout, before, mouths watering, the hikers hustled toward their reward.
