A Taste of Winter in Tuckerman Ravine

There was a very ominous sky as I departed for the trailhead this morning. The weather was less than ideal but I knew there was snow in the higher elevations and I wanted to go make some tracks. One of the best places for experiencing some snow is Tuckerman Ravine. So my hike today would take me up the Tuckerman Ravine Trail to the bottom of the Tuckerman headwall and return on the same trail.

Over Mount Surprise to Mount Moriah

The full moon setting and the sun rising created some spectacular scenery on the drive to the trailhead today. My destination was Gorham, NH for a hike to Mount Moriah (4,049 ft.) via the Carter-Moriah Trail over Mount Surprise.

Mount Cabot and A Sea of Clouds

After driving to the trailhead yesterday and watching the clouds roll in with obscured summits I decided to postpone my hike to Mount Cabot until today. As it turns out, yesterday was a pretty nice day. There was a very thick cloud cover this morning and the mountains were completely covered. I decided to go for it and I was in for a real treat known as undercast. The plan was to start at the York Pond Trail to Bunnell Notch Trail and up to the summit of Mount Cabot (4,170 ft.) via the Kilkenny Ridge Trail.
