On Monday, it was a perfect weather day for my next challenge, which was to summit Mt. Washington by going up Tuckerman Ravine Trail...of some sort. It was a difficult and beautifully intense challenge, and one that certainly met my expectations perfectly.

I love this rugged view on the approach on Tuckerman Ravine Trail...

As I make my way up the right side, two rangers do avalanche testing...see their photos from the day on the MWAC site.

Thank you everyone. Of the 7 times I've been to the summit, and despite it being winter, it might have been the best weather I've had on the summit.
