    Default Mount Hale, November, 20

    Hunter and I battled our way up The Hale Brook Trail in classic tricky late November hiking conditions.

    Hunter has been very busy with his senior year in high school and finishing his college applications. The trip was a nice break and well deserved.

    It was cold and very windy with some pretty healthy gusts and snowing steadily on the summit.

    The trip up was challenging with ice covered rocks and roots. Everything was covered with a fresh snowfall making it even more interesting. It was a beautiful hike through the forest and one of the nicest stretches of birch trees in The Whites.

    Mount Hale is usually one of the easier 4,000 footers, but not today.

    We had fun slipping and sliding on the decent with a few falls to show for our effort.

    Overall another nice day in the mountains.
