One of the top few toughest "short" hikes I've ever experienced. But this was the right day for it. 10 people strong (plus two more for the NKD/WC ridge) broke out a solid track to bag these three peaks near and along the Canadian border with Maine. Snowshoes all the way, in anywhere between 1 to 3 feet of snow.
So fortunate to have been with such a great group of strong hikers, all of them. The trail breaking, the bushwhacking, the wind-swept clearings, hiking out in the dark - all of it was a great challenge, with great reward. Thank you Pam, Tim, Jess, Jessica, Ron, Chris, Doug, Ryan, Yvonne, Deb, and Charlie!
