Great hike and pictures , makes me want to pull my gear out.
Trip #1 is right up the Street from you Bob...that was me waving from the summit!
Yes I know , the White Mountains are my back yard . Which trails were you on . I've climbed Moosilauke 3 time in winter and never saw the sky , once heavy fog , once heavy snow and the next was a combo of everything , the dog looked like an ice sculpture .
PS the one in blue ?
Bob; Lonesome Lake, Cascade, Fishin' Jimmy and then Kinsmen Ridge trails...all from Lafayette CG.
This is porobably one of the most popular in the Whites...

Wow, Kinsman in the dead of winter! A brutal climb, but it looks worth every bead of sweat!!
Many thanks for this great documentation of your expedition!
Yeah, we (all the Guys in the pics) are working on the (48) 4000 footers in NH...the idea is to do them in both summer and winter...some are actually easier in winter...the snow pack makes the going a little easier.
It can get a little chilly in winter though...keep moving, don't take your mittens off!
When I saw White Mtn Hiking I couldn't resist butting in. Lafayette Place campground is open all winter, though I'm not sure how much they plow. Did you bring the camper? We camped at Hancock in mid-winter last year, and made a good try for Mt. Flume via the Osceo trail, but just couldn't make it up the ladders the snow was so deep.
We rented a condo in January up at Killington with the whole family: My mother, our daughters, their husbands, and our new granddaughter...next year maybe we'll have her on skis. Otherwise,no skiing; the Rhodyroamer has been "indisposed" this winter...but the repairs are shaping up nicely now that warmer weather has arrived.
Do you guys ever hike in RI? I have a good one you would enjoy that is about 14 miles and a pretty good workout if you can't get up north. Lynn and I hiked it yesterday...a beautiful day. I can PM you the route if you'd like...its my secret "5 ponds, 2 states" hike. It's amazing how far you can go and only cross 1 paved road.
