It was early but not early enough.
I had to get out. Get a hike in. Headed up to Franconia Notch.
It was a fine day in the early spring of the North Country. You can see a bunch of the other pictures from this day at my flickr site.
Looking north on the way up. Might be a bit of Canada out there.
This is the amazing summit of Galehead Mountain. Worth the extra hour to get to…
On the way to that summit, you can look down at Galehead Hut. South Twin on right (out of frame) and North Twin on left.
Gorgeous view from up above Galehead Hut looking out at the Lafayette Ridge east side, Mt. Garfield on the right. Right foreground is the southern shoulder of Galehead. Owlhead on the left, the large dark mass.
We weren’t the only ones out there! (This is a small black bear!)
This is the top of South Twin. We just ran to North Twin from here, about 25 minutes/1.3 miles. It was awesome.
Wow. From the top. Mt. Washington in the background. Gorgeous day.
Nothin’ like the top of a good old mountain after a lot of pure physical exertion.
