Hiking up Mount Washington tomorrow!

Tomorrow, I’ll be heading up Mount Washington, home of the world’s worst weather, with my friend, photographer Stetson Hundgen and his outdoor guide company, Brooklyn Outfitters. We’re hoping to get all the way to the summit, but conditions look pretty gnarly right now. Looks like Old Man Winter arrived just it time to make the trek challenging!

The last time I hiked up to the summit of Mount Washington, it was a balmy day in July 2010. The mountain is an entirely different beast come winter, and I’m excited to meet her head on.

You can check out summit conditions (updated every 15 minutes) via the Mount Washington Observatory website. Follow the weather throughout the day on Sunday to see what we’ll be up against.

Wish us luck!

Finally some snow!

After an¬†unseasonably warm and dry winter, we’ve finally got some snow in central New England! A few inches fell yesterday and some more today, and we might get even more snow overnight. Woohoo!

Here are a couple of photos I snapped at Bradley Draper Memorial Forest on Gilmore Pond in Jaffrey yesterday while on assignment for NEFF.

A woodland trail leads through the snow drenched hemlocks and hardwoods.

 

The distant shoreline, partially frozen ice, and the lip of a snow covered boulder create a minimalist landscape scene looking out across Gilmore Pond.
