    trust me...I know how this sounds. I've read a lot on the net about it though and it's not really a glacier in the true sense of crevasses,ice flows etc. It's basically a large snow field. It looks...

    That sucks. I admit when I first did Washington I never bothered to sign any of the logs. Since then I've become a lot more experienced (and aware/careful) and make sure I always let someone know...

    Awesome pics! I can't wait to do this one later this summer. I'd love to do an extended overnight hike like you did but I'm operating on a limited time budget so I'll have to try and make a day hike...

    NICE! I did Half Dome last summer as a day hike in late September. The falls were a trickle and Yosemite Falls were dry. It's cool to see the pics of them in their full splendor (I did the mist trail...

    Best bet for moose in the Whites?

    I've lived in NH for just over 2 years now and have done more than my fair share of hiking in that time. I'm usually up north most weekends regardless of season and I still have yet to actually see a...

    If you ski they also run tramdock.com which is all ski gear, including skis. The deals are downright sick sometimes.
