White Mountains

Hello everybody,

The Simms family just got out of the mountains. Four days in the backcountry trekking across the Presidential Range in New Hampshire. On Day 1 we climbed straight up Airline Trail to the summit of Mount Madison (5300') and stayed at a cool mountain hut. Day 2 we summited Mount Jefferson (5800') and Mount Washington (6200') and stayed at a cool hut called "Lakes of the Clouds". Day 3 was a small peak called Mount Pierce (4000'), a short stay at Mizpah Hut and then down the mountain range to our car. Wicked weather with panoramic views ... check theses photos. Our last day we had some crazee high winds up on the Crawford Trail above the tree line. We are going to have a great sleep tonight and then start making our way back to Ontario.

All for now,
