Can anyone name the mountain and geologic features behind these clouds? We've seen our fair share of rain and clouds over the past few days so I decided to take advantage of some fair weather today and get out for a quick hike.
Happily, if you hike up to Square Ledge over the next five days, you'll not only see the emerging green leaves filling Pinkham Notch but also clear blue skies over Mt. Washington and the last little bit of snow in Tuckerman and Huntington Ravines. With a beautiful forecast for the weekend, this is a great time to check out some other views in the Whites or visit one of the six huts that are currently open for self-service.
As we start gearing up for the summer season with airlifts, hut crew training and openings, you'll see some more regular posts and photos. Happy spring everyone, get out and enjoy it!
