A morning hike to claim four new geocaches in Waterville Valley (thanks, nhraven!). The Davis Boulders and Goodrich Rock, the largest glacial erratic in the Valley, are always fun to visit.

Good rock work on the Goodrich Rock Trail, maintained by the Waterville Valley Athletic and Improvement Association.

The passage through this split boulder is one of the fun spots along the trail.

Another of the Davis Boulders, named for cottage owner J.W. Davis, who discovered them in the 1890s.

A 20-foot ladder accesses the top of Goodrich Rock. The huge boulder was discovered by, and named for, Waterville hiker and guidebook author Arthur L. Goodrich.

 From the top of the rock there's a nice view across the valley to Sandwich Dome.

Sandwich Dome, Noon Peak, Jennings Peak and Sachem Peak.

Peering down from the top of the ladder. Goodrich Rock is an "elective" hike on the "Terrifying 25" list of NH hikes created by Alex, Sage and Trish Herr.

The "ocean liner" boulder.

A peaceful summer morning on the Mad River.
