Mt. Major 12/6/09

Difficulty: Moderate (steep and rough especially on ledges)

Directions: From Alton, NH take Rt. 11 West and follow it for about 6 miles. Trail head parking lot is on the left (blue sign)
Report: With a fresh 5 inches of snow on the ground and beautifully graceing the trees I was off Sunday morning to meet my parents at Mt. Major in Alton. We started at 9:30am, the first there to break-in the trail! Footing was fine most the way up. It got a little tuff on the ledges with 3 ft. snow drifts in the crevice's. Took tons of pics and a few video's. We took the Brook Trail down and arrived back at the parking lot at 11:15am. Beautiful winter day and a perfect mountain for a comfortable (get-me-the-hell-out-of-the-house-for-just-a-couple-hours) hike! Pics of this hike here!>
