  1. Wow looks great!
    What kind of outer jacket are yoou wearing these days?

  2. Pictures are amazing. Love to see it for my self one day!

  3. - Gideon, glad you like the pics, someday you'll get up there and take in some kick ass views!

    - Anonymous, the jacket I wear is Columbia with a fleece that zips into the inside. It has always kept me warm, dry, and protected from the wind in all conditions I have come across so far. My only complaint is the hood gets blown back in high winds, but I have found a way to make sure it stays on my head.

  4. Great pictures. Snowshoes the whole way?

  5. Glad you liked the pictures!

    I wore snowshoes the whole way but I could have wore microspikes on Sawyer River Road and for the first 1.7 miles to the Carrigain Notch trail junction. However after this last snow storm it'll be all snowshoes!

  6. Chris, that is a dynamite batch of photos! Thanks for posting.
