Hancocks: Buh Bye!

Two more 48's off the list. I took both Spanky and Jake out to the Hancocks today. Only 3.5 hours to do the whole loop. Trail conditions are excellent these days - only about 1/2" of snow on the summit, temps in 20's, low wind and blue sky. Unfortunately there's not much sun on that hike unless you're down low near the Kanc. We didn't stop at the North summit (just beyond the area with exposed ledge and sunshine) because I was hoping to find some sun and have lunch on the South summit. Forget it. We ate on our feet (it was pretty chilly up there) and had a nice lunch back at the car.

Nobody out. Ultra quiet. Wednesday is a great day of the week to hike.

Highlights (Pics Here):

  • Jake has now tagged his first two 4k'ers.
  • Spanky is up to 9 I think: Pierce, Jackson, Eisenhower, Lafayette, Moosilauke, North Kinsman, Bondcliff, North/South Hancock. Can't recall if we tagged South Kinsman when we were up there.
