Great trip around the Ausable Lakes.
Best Day I've seen in the Daks in years.
first with new girlfriend backpacking trip
Climbed as the last peak in a round about starting with Dix-Dial-Nippletop
Second trip up, second in early April. Ugly people always get breakfast. Christ, they'll have the sheriff up here if I don't feed ya.
With Blake, of course.
My old lady only bought one ticket for the dead. So I went climbing. Greatest views in the high peaks to date. Slide paths in every direction. Then I did blake. Curse that wretched mountain.
A nice climb with good views. Fog came in when I returned to this summit from Blake Peak.
Steep sections kicked butt after coming from Nippletop and dial, ugh, getting old! Nice view of lower ausable and surrounding peaks.
Great mountain. Several nice views along the long summit ridge. Not to difficult unless you opt to traverse over to Blake peak in the same trip (which we did). We also started over Fish Hawk Cliffs and Indian Head for additional views.
Very nice hike.
