Osgood twice  Sucess!

In fall it was great, but last winter was the best! Getting above treeline is amazing in the presi's when bluebird skies are out!

Climbed several times  Sucess!

Did the presi traverse a couple of times and camped a few hunderd feet below the Hut in January(VERY COLD). One of my favorites in the Whites.

In a hurricane  Sucess!

Title say it all. Came up the AT and the weather turned wicked. I think I will give up hiking on this date.

No Wind!  Sucess!

I did an Adams-Madison Combo. The Watson Trail was not such a hot descending route. Trip Report coming soon!

Osgood from Gulfside  Sucess!

After I climbed Mt. Adams I took the Gulfside trail to the Madison hut and went up the Osgood. Not hard, but I was tired from climbing Adams. Took Valley Way back down.

Via path from Hut  Sucess!

After spending the night at Madison Hut, the nasty weather finally lifted and Flanders and I bagged this one in the morning on our third day. Ninth and final peak on a south to north Presidential Traverse. Went down Valley Way and caught the shuttle back to Crawford Notch to the car to head to Maine. Nice morning with blue skies for the most part....finally!

NH 4K list finish  Sucess!

Started in 1987 on Moosilauke at age 11, and steadily chipped away for 19 years. Up the Webster (Scout) Trail with my little brother, and we had a fine, fine day of it. A Long Trail Ale at the top was a fitting conclusion. Really enjoyed the day, and was glad my brother (an urbanite to the core!) joined me.

Osgood Trail  Sucess!

Overnighted in the Madison Hut and then went up and over Madison in the morning via the Osgood Trail. Great views and a very nice summit, except the weather was a little overcast and pretty windy at the top. Used the Osgood as a descent route, down to the Old Jackson Trail and then across to the car at Pinkham Notch...long descent.

A big, beautiful pile of rocks!  Sucess!

I love this peak as I do all the Presidentials. Great views of the other peaks and of the Great North Woods.
