Another summitlog that was erased somehow. Did with Flanders this day.
Beautiful day in the snow, but not a lot of views.
I did a morning out and back from the Kanc on a day that I thought would just be rain, but it was actually no rain and just snow in the summits. There was only about 2" of snow but the rain from the day before had frozen overnight and made the rocks quite treacherous so I ended up putting on my Microspikes about 2/3 of the way up and it made all the difference. The open slide area between the knob and the summit was hard with the ice and light snow but the rest was just a one foot over the other slog up the mountain. No views at all I was totally in the clouds with 23MPH winds picking up all the light snow and blowing it around.
Avoided the "chimney," and opted to for the easier path from Osceola. Great day of hiking
Nice trail from Osceola to E. Osceaola. A spruce grouse was spotted just before reaching "the chimney". Also met LadyGray at the top of chimney, the best conversation on my hikes in the Whites. Bagged the little fella, then back to trailhead where a momma bear and cub tracks surrounded the tipped over trash recepticle.
Popped over from the top of Osceola itself to bag this one. Views were minimal but the rock chimney between the two made it worth it, even while wet.
Great early October hike with both foliage and snow. Views were great, weather was great, trail was great.
Climbed with Osceola via the Mount Osceola Trail from Tripoli Road. Not much in the way of views from the east peak. It began to cloud up during the traverse back to Osceola but were able to avoid late afternoon rain.
good combination to a business trip!!
First winter 4000' er
With Mt Osceola, I climbed this one. Despite the drizzle/rain and no view, it was still good.
In conjunction with Osceola, Hancock and South Hancock.
Hiked it after doing Mt. Osceola. I had to help my dog a couple times on the chimney.
Another wet, cloudy day. Great day for peak bagging!
From Greeley Ponds Trail. Went a little heavy with most of my winter gear except snowshoes, just for training. Trail was harder than I bargained for, I had planned to continue to Osceola but decided to skip it in order to save daylight.
