||What a gem of a day to be in The Whites! I got a late start today and was only intending to summit Lafayette and head back down. Once taking some time at the peak to have some hot coffee out of my thermos I truly started to appreciate how nice of a day it was and felt inspired to complete the rest of the loop. So glad I did! Came across 7 other people today, 3 had climbed Lafayette and were on their way back down and the others were doing the ridge in the opposite direction.|
Met a furry critter at Greenleaf Hut, not quite sure what he was, looked like a mixture of a fox and a ferret/weasel. He had a yellowish white color to him and was entirely too friendly, people have surely been feeding him as he was coming within 6 inches of me as I sat for a few minutes to have a snack. I was almost expecting him to try and climb up my leg. Don't feed animals in the wild folks, its not good for them in the long run.
