    BU Outing Club tackles Mount Adams

    A friend directed me to this article about a group of Boston University students backpacking on Mount Adams. They didn't do it exactly the way that I would, but I thought it was a really well-done video and article.

    Hopefully this link works.

    That was good, I enjoyed it. Sure there are some things I'd do differently especially using my insulated leather shoes and I think we are more snowshoe oriented here especially below the treeline. Wouldn't it have been nice if that group had broken out a snowshoe track. But all in all I thought they were well prepared and handled the situation well. I also thought the video was well done.
