The Snowcat ride up on Wednesday was great and lasted about 1.5 hrs. What a great week to be up on the rock pile! We had record high temps, and incredible winds peaking to about 117 mph. Two groups visited at the beginning of the week. Five hikers from NH, NY and NJ. We had a very nice visit, and woke up to a beautiful sunrise.

On Saturday a group of eleven came up for an edutrip. Again, a real nice group of people from all over—NH, IN, CT and VT. They had fantastic weather, and spent a lot of time outside. The mountain cooperated with another beautiful sunrise. I was thrilled to have some windy, winter weather to experience, but also sunny days with visibility, which was great for photography. As always the week was great!

Food, friends and the beauty of the mountain. Oh, and Marty…the ever entertaining cat!
