Increadible area between Mt Wash and Clay, clouds and fog were blasting up and over the saddle between the mountains.
Picture-perfect day with clear skies, light winds and an undercast.
Jewell trail to Mounts Clay, Jefferson, Adams, Quincy Adams and Madison. Perfect weather, great views.
Ran up Clay on our way from Jefferson to Washington. Great view of Washington and views of where we came from earlier that morning. Windy, but sunny. Lovely day.
A scenic bump on the Presidential Traverse.
We all wondered why this did not count as a 4,000 footer - the effort we put in to climb it made us want SOME recognition for it.
Nasty weather and no views. 1st mountain on second day of traverse
walked right over this one on the way to washington
Bagged this after Washington with Flanders on our south to north Presidential Traverse. Almost no visibility, lots of rain. Was soaked to the bone by this point. so, on we trudged to Jefferson................
120 miles of visibility...only the second day this year! In talking to locals they said that many of them had been up in the area multiple times and NEVER had a day like that. From Washington down to Clay on to Jefferson and the rest of the northern Presidentials with a stopover at the Madison Hut.
Nice day in the whites
Needed 2 Wilderness permits then, because we entered/left the Wilderness twice
We climbed the fissure in the east face of Mt. Clay from the Great Gulf that is called Wair Until Dark Gully. It's a nice climb and the weather was absolutely stunning. We came from pinkham via damnation gully and the great gulf headwall and returned via wait until dark, Mt. Washington Summit and right gully in tuckermans after climbing the tuckerman headwall. A great day in the mountains.
8 peaks - we missed the last one on accident - in 19.8 miles. I slept REALLY well that night!
Enjoyed the hike and getting to know more of the presidentials. Great views...
Met a number of people "climbing" this peak by walking down from Washington after taking the railroad up.
Dramatic views into the Great Gulf and up to Washington.
After summiting Mt Washington, I reached Mt Clay. I then headed to The Great Gulf to camp for the night,.
Neat summit because we were able to see Washington the whole way down since we couldn't see it the whole way up. Beautiful views where we could see them. Nice view into Great Gulf.
Beautiful views into the Great Gulf and back to Washington and the rest of the White Mountains from the summit. Perfectly crystal clear afternoon and lovely day above the timber.
