"Happy New Years from Mt. Major" (pictures)
Always a pleasure to be on Alton Bays beloved mountain. Scott and I took advantage of this unseasonably warm first day of 2012. We parked in an already half full parking lot and made our way up the Mt. Major trail. We made our way around the ice on the lower ledges below the summit and had to take out the micro spikes for the bottom section of the upper ledges. We reached the summit and took in the wonderful view. Mt. Washington was glowing in a pinkish white behind an otherwise snowless scene. We descended via the Boulder trail avoiding some ice here-and-there. Happy Belated New Year! My online resolution....to stop slacking on the trip reports, LOL!
