Day after Christmas and home for vacation along with my dudes? Let’s hike a mountain! Luckily, one of us (not me) basically lives at the trailhead in New Hampshire. And another one of us (again, not me) has hiked it before just passing through on his 2000 mile Appalachian trail completion . That said, it was winter, and we’re idiots. Microspikes? Never heard of em. Mount Madison, here we come (we hope). Photo time.

It got slick. Keith loaned one pair microspikes to me and Kev (so we each had one stable foot, nice).

And we made it. I think there was some bushwacking on the way down. Maybe. That said, if you’re warm/dry enough, hiking a snowy trail is almost preferable to the summer. But ask me that again next year.
