Whitecap Mountain #176 of the Year


Remember to click on the first photo to enlarge. 

We climbed our 4th mountain of the week this Halloween Saturday. There will be a blue moon after a day with plenty of sunshine. Though the temperature was around 40, I warmed up quickly and figured I overdressed. Didn't matter--loved it. I worried a bit about Bailey, but he did the deal on the up and greeted fellow hikers politely...only after I checked in with them. I met one fellow on the way up who was resting on a stump. He was just 15% of the way up and I knew he should think twice about summiting. I gave him an alternate route that goes by several water falls and connects to the Starr Trail (Yellow). Twenty-four more hikes to hike 200. It'd be fun to accomplish this.

The tallest peak in the distance is Mt Washington in New Hampshire

After the last steep section. 

Waiting for his human at the top of the final cliff climb. 

And again

Just before the first cliff climb. 

After the hike...WHERE'S THE TREAT?!
