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!

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!

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.

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!
