Pics from today’s hike.  This was my first time going up to Mt. Washington by the Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail, and down by the Jewell Trail.  We also bagged Mt. Monroe on our way up.  The trails were messy, watery, and on the Ammonoosuc, snowy and icy in parts.  It was also very cloudy most of the day,  Still, it’s my 13th summit of Mt. Washington, and second of Monroe; and despite the weather and trail conditions, a lot of fun.

Today sunday Ascending Mt Monroe by Ammonosuc Ravine Tr. Spring like weather , beautiful views and clouds coming … from SW of course. Just beat them. (Nice photo of me taken near Lake of The clouds Hut by @grigrirando) #igersnh#whitemountains#newhampshire#hikethewhites#backpackingculture

Descending Mt Washington heading toward the small peak of Mt. Monroe on the horizon :) A thank you is owed to Washington for taking a break from its 👎 avalanche conditions and consistently terrible, dangerous weather (Washington –> 😈) #mountwashington #mountmonroe #mountaineering #onthissideofthecoast?
