I took the opportunity to brave the white mountain Sunday morning and again Sunday night. It was dark, both times. It was good to have a friend along in the morning but my teenage boys bagged out on the evening hike!
Both hikes greeted me with a face full of snow! It was a little slick on the trail, time for some new boots. I got to the top on the family trail in about 24 minutes. The snow blocked the view and we saw only 1 other hiker (with his small dog). Both hikes were very enjoyable, I’ve included a picture of this hike. I call it the family route. The hike starts from the park at the top of Shockley Road.
