Icy Day On Mt Moosilauke!

With the milder spring weather rolling in it was time for my dog Conan to join me on the trails. I decided we’d go for Mt Moosilauke today. Mt Moosilauke… or Moose as it’s nicknamed by hikers, skiers and climbers, is the western most 4000 footer. Standing at 4,803′ feet tall it is known as the “other above treeline peak” in the White Mountain National Forest or New Hampshire.  It’s bald exposed summit is commonly shrouded in clouds and beaten by whipping wind gusts. The last time I was up here I experienced the highest winds I’d ever personally hiked through with gusts topping 70MPH.
