    Really fun time. Pretty challenging in some areas but doable. Great sense of accomplishment at the end.

    A great hike! Fall foliage just starting and overcast weather but still some good views on the upper part of the Forest City trail and the long trail. There’s some scrambling on the Long Trail and the rocks were wet so I had to give our Cairn Terrier a boost up in spots. More challenging was the leash requirement above tree line, which restricted both Mack and me while negotiating the summit cone. The Burrows trail was a pleasant but unremarkable descent.

Camel's Hump
Straightforward hike, uncommonly easy and quick for a 4000-footer, at under 5 miles. Recent snowfall and traffic earlier in the day provided a nice, soft pack so snowshoes worked the whole way. The summit cone did have bare rock and ice, but with some care the snowshoes were fine (just 40-50 feet total of that). Used my Kahtoola K-10s for the first mile but found they weren't really helping all that much, so I switched to snowshoes and wore them the rest of the way up, and all the way down. The K-10s would have been helpful on the summit cone, but snowshoe televators made the overall ascent much easier. mountain-forecast.com is usually pretty spot on, but this time they were a little off. Had some sun and clear skies, and wind wasn't half what was forecast (just 10-15 mph tops, and that was only occasional weak gusts). This is 60 of the Winter 67 New England 4000 footers for me.
