    Also – a small mention in todays Nashua Telegragh

    http://www.nashuatelegraph.com/Main.asp?SectionID=25&SubSectionID=354&ArticleID=88799

    At the bottom of the article is the following:

    On Saturday, hikers will try to put American flags atop the 48 White Mountain peaks taller than 4,000 feet. The tradition began when some hikers posted a flag on Mount Liberty just days after the 2001 attacks. Last year flags were flown all the 4,000-footers on Sept. 14.

    I heard a rumor of a Good Morning America mention this morning as well. Can anyone confirm?

    My wife just told me it was covered on WZID this morning and I just checked the WMUR Website and found this:

    Sept. 13
    White Mountains
    Hikers plan to put American flags atop the 48 peaks taller than 4,000 feet. Flags will fly from noon to 2 p.m. More information at http://www.alpinezone.com.

    Perhaps it will be on the Channel 9 news tonight.

    It was on in the background and I had to do a double-take. They had video of the Presidentials and everything!

    Once again, the event was mentioned, although not by name, on WHEB and WGIR. Perhaps next year a press release would be warranted including the name of the event, etc?

    It went out to the newspapers, and I assume that the AP had the name, which is where all these organizations are getting the info from. They just chose to leave it out. Or maybe AP left it off the wire?
