Franconia Ridge In The Mist

Thursday was an amazing day on Franconia Ridge. There was NOBODY there. Not a soul. Nobody in parking lot when I left, and nobody in the parking lot when I got back.

The drifts are kind of deep in spots but there's wind-crust in most places. Lots of snow.

There was no wind on the ascent or the descent. The ridge was a little breezy, but no face mask was required. Goggles were needed only because of the uniform glare. The flat light made it difficult to see drifts. It was not uncommon to plunge down a foot on the other side of a drift because there were no visible edges.

Pics are HERE.
