My climbing buddy and me picked the perfect day for a winter hike of Little Jackson. Not a cloud in the sky, and it was 40 degrees on the trail up to the open summit, where it was a little colder and windier. Outstanding views in every direction from Bigelow to Mt. Washington.
A nice walk through the woods on a cool August morning. Above treeline felt more like late October... COLD and WIND! Lots of fun... I was shocked at how expansive the alpine zone is up there. Blueberries everywhere.
