Cool hike, stopped at Mizpah hut and enjoy the blueberry cake. Had to dash back to avoid a storm.

This was my first winter hike in the Whites. The plan was to camp atop Mt. Pierce and then hit Eisenhower, Monroe, and Mount Washington the following day.

My solo camping experience atop Mt. Pierce was amazing. But, that was to be the highlight of the trip.

My canister stove died in the sub-zero temps so I had little water. I lost my balaclava somewhere in my pack. This left my face freezing in the high, cold wind. Most of all though, I didn't have any snowshoes or crampons. I was post-holing up to my crotch every other step. At one point I slipped into a snow-drift so deep than I was literally up to my neck in it. It took several frigid minutes trying to dig myself out.

Needless to say, I simply wasn't prepared to make it over to Eisenhower and beyond. I intend to buy some snow-shoes and a liquid fuel stove before I try such a trip again.

Beautiful place though, despite the failure! I'll try and post to photos soon.

Part of a north-to-south presi traverse dayhike, Madison to Webster. Great conditions until just before the Mizpah hut, at which point there was some lightning and hail.

Up Eisenhower and over Pierce day 1. Camped at Nauman, and headed to Jackson the next day... though a bear made us change course and head down Crawford!

Took the Crawford Path up. This was a nice hike. I was in no hurry and the trail was very easy to negotiate. I was getting ready for the hard work when the trail leveled out near the summit. It was a little cool on top, but the views of the rest of the Presidential Range were excellent.
