perfect weather  Sucess!

Quick run during a conference break in my Five-Finger bare-footsies. From Stowe Mountain Lodge up Long Trail and down Cliff Trail and ski slopes in 2:15min.

5th SHP, first for my son  Sucess!

Hiked the Long Trail southbound from rte 108 to the Chin (some rock scrambling/climbing towards the peak) then followed the summit ridge trail to the gondola trail-a very steep trail with a lot of rock scrambling and then took the gondola down to the base and walked half a mile back to the car. Cloudy but dry day! This was my first Vermont hike and I loved the green mountains everywhere!! My son enjoyed the arctic tundra at the summit and the rock climbing.

no bugs  Sucess!

Did a solo using the LT from the East side. Met a group of 10 French Canadian hotties on the way up. Perfect day. No bugs. Quick trip to the top, about 1.5 hours.

Hiking in a creek  Sucess!

My trio summited from Smuggler's Notch during a NASTY, day-long downpour. The trails were creeks, and I think my legs may have been drier in some swimming pools! Honestly, I wouldn't change it though, as it made the summit a far greater accomplishment.
It was really strange to get to the top and find a 'ranger' standing there in the wind and rain seemingly perfectly at peace - love it!

A great day  Sucess!

A nice little climb. Was really impressed with its long summit ridge. ANother great northeastern peak!

State HP#12  Sucess!

Reached the summit on the Saturday of the first weekend in December with temperatures in the 30's and a clear, sunny sky. Can't beat it! Good amount of ice and a little snow, but overall we were met with pretty tough to beat conditions for December.

Beautiful Sunrise  Sucess!

Left late in the afternoon from the Underhill State Park and hiked up the Sunset Ridge Trail. Probably my 25th time up here, the sunset did not disappoint- amazing view. Very ice trail, but little snow. Hung out at the top for a while, came down by 9:00 by moonlight - simply beautiful.

Mansfield Traverse

Very cold morning, sun came over the ridge as I came out onto the open Sunset Ridge. Enjoyed views up to the main ridge, had summit to myself, very cold strong winds. Started running into tourists along the ridge, visited Forehead and descended via the very steep but scenic Maple Ridge Trail. Great day!

Sunset Ridge  Sucess!

Up sunset, down halfway house. Beautiful day on top of the Greens

Bunch of times  Sucess!

In all seasons. Not the most aesthetic Vermont peak, but has the most alpine.

Stowe = Awesome  Sucess!

The volunteer on top taught us about rare vegetation. I felt guilty eating a salad later.

SHP #13  Sucess!

Honestly, my legs were a little sore after doing Katahdin the previous day, but the trip was wonderful. I did the Gondola/Cliff trail both ways and it was a blast. Lots of people on the top.

HP # 27  Sucess!

Really nice hike and great views of Lake Champlain in the distance. Crowded party atmosphere on top too.

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.
