On Saturday, we hiked to Mt. Zealand and Guyot where my brother reached his 39th peak this year. It was another beautiful late fall day in the Whites, and I was looking forward to hiking through this area.

The views from Zeacliff were definitely impressive. The view of the Willey Range in front of the Presidentials was a sight to see and the bowl on Carrigain looks so defined....

It was a little breezy on the summit of Guyot, but bearable and still enjoyable as we looked out all around the Pemi

The trails were coated with 1/2 inch or so of snow the entire way, except for a few bare spots near the bottom. There ground was solid on the way in, but there was a little bit of mud in places on the way out. Micro spikes stayed in our bags.
