  1. Pierce-Eisenhower Epic Day! via Crawford Path 3/29/15

    This was one of those blue ribbon days! Azure blue sky, relatively calm winds, freshly white-capped high peaks, crisp air, warm sun, and everyone we met had a smile on their faces! And, to boot, we...

    Well said, Sierra! Pontificating will only garner contempt! I also carry a good-sized pack year round and am asked, from time to time, if I'm spending the night. I guess I should reply "possibly",...

    It's hubris, or foolishness, or a combination of the two. At the very least, it was poor judgement to attempt with weather forecast, no matter how far the drive. Sad to see another life lost up...

    Hi John,

    We are our brother's keeper, to an extent, but I've certainly been in the same situation where we met folks ill-prepared and starting a bit late. I may have done the same as you did,...

    What an accomplishment! Great photos! (but just seeing that boundary marker brings back painful memories of climbing the boundary peak!)

    Nancy 3/16/13

    Pleasantly surprised to have about 3" fresh fluff at the Nancy Pond trailhead in Crawford Notch. Increased to about 6" at the ponds. Very firm underneath and snow bridges still intact. A few old...

    What a great day to be up there! Great photos! I was on Monadnock with my Boy Scout troop and also enjoyed the kind of alpine experience (well, almost) that you did.

    Ditto on DougPaul's comments.

    I think that many of us have been on that road in doing Crockers, Redington, Sugarloaf, etc. along the AT. As remote as it is, it's a favorite for local snowmobilers...
