I tend to get the feeling that wilderness without forest is actually wilderless.

True, but the interior of Maine is very remote. The Northwestern portion of the state alone has almost no towns at all.

Bare crests are great to me if I can see a sea of forest down below around the mts.
BTW I was translating an article about Mt Washington the other day and it read that - given its location and the resulting weather - the area might be deadlier than the West.
Happy hiking and take care as :) your pics of the Appalachians are terrific!
Merry Xmas,

Thank you for your kind words. Washington is quite a mountain ; I have summited twice before and hope to make a third ascent this winter. (We made an attempt last winter but were turned back because of bad weather.) Hopefully I will have some pictures to post afterwords.
Merry Christmas! - Tahawus

If you turned back instead of ramming on, you’re on the right path and we're gonna see those pics :-)
You can take a look at our counterpart of Mt Washington, a bit lower and within a much less wild area, but with similar weather surprises, nearby ravines and avalanches, and loads of rime frost. It's actually where I first experienced day winter hikes at about 10.
Cheers,
Jacek
