  1. I don't know when I have ever enjoyed pictures as much. Wonderful! Thank you so much for posting them!

  2. Thank you! I'm glad you liked the pictures!

  3. Magnificent photos, Chris. Such a beautiful day. This had to have been one of your favorite days out ever. I'm a Whites newbie, hoping to get up Washington soon having tried it twice and having done Moosilauke and Lafayette. I look forward to more adventures up there this summer and fall and really want to get up there when the snow returns for ventures like this one. I love your blog! Cheers, and thanks for sharing.
