B&H: Breaking and Hiking!

2015-05-08 19:21:21.000 – Kaitlyn O’Brien, Co-director of Summit Operations


Today was one of those days that begged you to get outside, and I couldn’t pass it up! We started off under nearly clear skies and by 7AM the temperature was already 47 degrees. The wind was practically non-existent, allowing for the sound of trickling water from the melting snow to be clearly heard as it rushed through the rocks below; searching for the most direct route off the summit. After a productive morning, I headed out for an afternoon hike over to Mount Clay.

It was a perfect day to leave the office for a bit and get a quick training hike in for Seek the Peak this July!
