Winter Presidential Traverse  Sucess!

North to South solo traverse over one night and two days. High pressure brought blue skies and arctic air. Overnight low of about -10 with average winds both days. Camped in Spinx Col. Snow squall chased me down the south side of Washington on day two.

Washington in winter  Sucess!

Great trip up Mt Washington during Feb.'13. Good dose of the famous bad weather, but not enough to end our trek. Completely awesome experience. Love to come back to this area in summer and do the Presidential Traverse, and others.

almost perfect weather  Sucess!

Did the full traverse. We were going to try it in 24 hours but, despite a forecast for clear skies, rain began as we approached Jefferson (welcome to the Whites) so we decided to descend to the Perch and sleep in the leanto. Finished the next day I absolute perfect weather. 60 degrees, slight breeze and crystal blue skies.

Presi Traverse  Sucess!

Three buddies and I got up early one summer morning nailed both the North and south Traverse in 14 hours. It took us a while because we kept taking pictures. Great hike!!
