Socked int  Sucess!

Thick fog at the top mid-day but still a nice sprint up and down the Long Trail. Would love to have enjoyed an eponymous frosted beverage afterward.

Beautiful Day   Sucess!

Gorgeous day, great views, started pretty early so summit didn't have too many people. And only a few pesky black flies were still out and about.

Horrible Conditions  Sucess!

Who would of thought a June day could be this crappy. in the woods was fine and pleasant enough but above the treeline brutal winds like 60mph at least and freezing rain. Fog so thick there was no views at all, i'll have to go back for real Mansfield experience

Brutal Winds  Sucess!

Went solo. Saw only two other people. I had summited and was on the way down when I ran into them. They had turned back because they lost the trail. I wish we were closer and all three of us could have made it.

Half and half

Got socked in after crossing the tree line, but once on top observed nice blue sky on one side and socked in on the other. Cool effect!

White Out

Started up through the trees then picked up Chinclip (closed) and took it to the warming hut. Stashed my snowboard there and pushed for the top. Had fun working up some gully systems. On the ridge, got full whiteout conditions with really strong winds. Turned around somewhere between the Lower Lip and the Chin. Great ride down the Cliff trail and Nosedive though.

Long Trail up, Haselton down  Sucess!

Went up the Long Trail, walked down to the Summit House, and descended Haselton Trail. Cloudy morning, but still far views to the Adirondacks.

Great sunny March climb  Sucess!

Via Long Trail at base then bush-whacked up some sweet walls:)

Long Trail but only half way, then make my own route  Sucess!

Where in the blazes did the (white) blazes go? Hint: if you lose the trail, find a ski run and mush to the top of the gondola house, then follow the boot pack up the so-called gondola trail. I think it brings you out near the top of the profanity trail. I lucked out and had a bluebird day with temperatures near or below zero, however. Winds were gusting but mostly under 10 mph. Next time I'd like to see the Taft Lodge and Lake of the Clouds.

Fog  Sucess!

I summitted as part of the Long Trail during my through-hike. The roads near the top were uninteresting to say the least, but in the obscurity of fogs they were soon forgotten.

I Know Why It's Called The Profanity Trail  Sucess!

Three times now - once via Long Trail from the picnic area and twice via Hell's Brook. It just doesn't look like there's any way up when crossing the Adam's Apple, but it's really nice from there to the top.

Rocky, slippery, and crowded!  Sucess!

Rocky, slippery, and crowded!

Busy but rewarding  Sucess!

Enjoyed the sounds of far off fireworks at the Taft shelter and in the morning, climbed the crags.

Nose to Chin  Sucess!

I hiked out to the Chin from the Nose. I also hiked out to the Adams Apple.

Mansfield  Sucess!

Climbed this mountain many many times. Winter, Fall, Summer, Spring, night, day, snow, wind, sun. Once saw a moose family on the sunset ridge trail.

up Hell Brook  Sucess!

up Hell Brook, backtrack to Adams Apple, summit, along ridge to Nose, back up ridge to Profanity and down Long Trail.
Hell Brook was very steep and wet - tough trail. Profanity should be considered rough and wet but by comparison it was a cakewalk.
Next time I'll try Sunset Ridge - looks like a beautiful trail.

lotsa people  Sucess!

Took the easy route along the ridge from the toll road parking lot. It was a beautiful summer day and the trail was quite crowded. Some mistook the artillery ? explosions in the distance for thunder. Nice views and pleasant summit volunteers from the GMC.

Laura Cowles up - Sunset Ridge down  Sucess!

Perfect weather. Up and down in 1 hr 48 min. On the run down, one of the hikers saw me and said to his friends, "hey look, someone under 18 who still has good knees." As I ran by, I said back "f%#@ that, I'm 43!"

Sunset Ridge up and down  Sucess!

Climbed sunset ridge route. Amazing views above tree line. My four year old son actually did the whole thing himself.

Mount Mansfield  Sucess!

Nice hike, but a lot of fog prevented any picture-taking.
