There's not many things better than getting to share the trail with your dad.
A lovely little shot by @twdbella323 before sunrise as we approached the summit of Jefferson. We still had very moderate conditions here but they progressively got worse, of which I have too many pictures that encapture the conditions. I'll slowly post the best ones over the next few weeks.
To be completely honest, hiking in negative degree weather with hurricane force winds throwing you against rocks and ice, snow and rain blocking your view, sweat freezing on your back and hair turning to ice, burning lungs and numb hands and feet, fear and adrenaline running through your body, eyelashes freezing shut and ice building up on your gear, fast heart beat and heavy breathing, pain and anxiety, water supply turning to ice and frozen bars to hard to chew, tripping over roots and getting dirty and cut up from the forest, getting lost in blizzards, falling down hills of ice and having thoughts of if I should turn around....... IT’S ALL SO MUCH FUN AND I HAVE NO IDEA WHY. Me and questionable weather... I will always find it, and it will never stop me. Did I miss anything?
Got out today with @sterlingbrooks to get in some type 2, early winter fun on Mount Chocorua today. A place that never seems to disappoint. It was raining on the hike up and snowing on the mountain. I literally could not be more excited that winter has already reached its hold on the Whites.
You haven’t seen fall foliage until you’ve been to New Hampshire. This photo was taken slightly past peak and still manages to capture the incredible colors that make span for miles across these mountains 🍁
Another shot of Eisenhower, but this one is from a couple years ago. I really like the palette in this one, I think it fully captures the colors of peak autumn.
