    A few in the 16+ hour range. Longest by mileage was a Pemi loop with West Bond and North Twin (think I skipped Galehead that time) but by far the most exhausting was a 17 hour solo epic in the...

    We are wondering the same thing. Headed out in the AM but would love to hear a report if anyone has one.

    Some years it's pretty much out of the question anywhere in northern New England. If March does not see large accumulating snows, though, you might luck out. Four years ago we had a very early...

    Yikes! We didn't get onto anything quite as crummy as that. There were a few stretches on Gulfside up above the Air Line junction that were pretty sketchy, but it was generally possible to stay on...

    Nice! Your pics are pretty great; they really capture the drama of the conditions. It's rarely easy up there in winter. We climbed Adams on Tuesday via Randolph Path > Lowe's Path, descending...

    Just got in from a 60-minute hike up our neighborhood hill ("The Knob") with the kids. The sun is out and the sky is brilliant blue, but temps are dropping and the wind's picking up. No goggles,...

    We were hoping to do Owl's Head this Sunday, but we're going to scrub it. Too cold, too deep in.

    It's going to be tough out there. I did a sunset/twilight hike for a couple hours after work...

    Great pics. It was a beautiful day. We were on the Twins, and for a while in the morning it looked like we were going to be socked in altogether. When it opened up, though -- wow!

    Did you get...

    I checked out their web site. It looks like a setup for people to get in trouble -- huge group (probably in violation of state forest & park regs, by the looks of it), 50 miles of the LT in winter...

    I can't give you a very scientific or arithmetical answer, but generally we try to take the sort of pace that we feel like we could sustain pretty much indefinitely. It's like pacing a very long run...

    When our kids were 6 and 8 we did a week-long Maine trip, camping at Peaks Kenny State Park and then at various points in Baxter. Out of ~ six nights away from home we were backpacking two (nights...

    Really great pics. The "sea of clouds" one with man and dog is my favorite. The "view into Castle Ravine" is really the Great Gulf -- Castle Ravine is behind the viewer's right shoulder, like 180...

    I think the biggest value of the "winter list" for us is just giving us an extra shove out the door in a time of year when it's all too easy to stay in, and an extra incentive to go a variety of...

    We're kinda bummed about the forecast -- it's looking pretty sour for tomorrow. If we do anything at all it'll be a quick in and out to Hale, but it's looking like it might be a better day to do...
