    Very much agreed -- the loop, with a quick stop on South Peak.

    Hi Matt,
    Long time no see! I hope all is well. You've received great advice, so I don't have much to add except when Linda & I climbed it in July, we saw a moose and a calf! You will love the Whites;; it's our favorite hiking destination. :-)

    Great advice here. I would add that the peak is a bit isolated so it creates its own weather patterns. The summit is very exposed and typically has high winds. Plenty of tree cover on the approaches and on the ridge though.
