Comments
Comments: It's winter. Micro spikes superb today and would have slipped a LOT without them. Some drifts on the ridge 2.5 feet deep already. Bony in spots but some areas nicely starting to fill with snow. Sun came out and a great day to be up on the ridge with winds seemingly much slower than forecast. Be fully prepared for winter, it's here in the mountains. Went out with 3 who had never hiked the Whites and they all had a great day.
