Why are you reporting this puzzle?

As found on "flagsonthe48.org": "On September 11th, 2001 the consciousness of United States of America was undeniably altered by overwhelming and devastating acts of terrorism, so far reaching in their intensity that our country will forever carry the scars. Thousands of lives were lost in a fleeting moment, immeasurable families shattered and countless hearts broken.

We in the hiking community continue to honor the deceased with a tribute: flying the American flag atop all 48 four-thousand foot and higher mountains in New Hampshire on Sunday, September 11. By demonstrating our steadfast unity in this challenging endeavor, we also hope to express our unwavering support to the families, friends and communities whose losses are beyond comprehension and whose suffering we remember in our hearts."

The summit of Mt Carrigain is a 5-mile hike from the parking lot. There is a fire tower at the summit of Mt Carrigain, and the folks who flew their flag at that summit carried it all the way to the summit to fly it from the tower itself.

I stumbled upon this event back in 2012, and have tried to hike on the date of the flagsonthe48 event since then. They usually have it on the SAT closest to 9/11 but it has also taken place on SUN (when 9/11 fell on a SUN). We hiked up Mt Pierce this year. The flag on Mt Pierce was being flown by 3 different Boy Scout Troops from Massachusetts, and we reached the summit just as they were starting their memorial service there. It was quite a touching tribute, and we were honored to be there for it.

A tribute I thank you for pointing out to us. A thank you as well to those hikers who participated in flying the flags.
