Never too Cold to Climb a Mountain

Despite being 4 below zero and windy this morning my brother in law Don and I couldn’t stomach to sit indoors. Instead we went for a hike. Not only did we bundle up to head for a hike, but Don suggested we summit Mt. Roberts near the famous Castle in the Clouds.

In less than two hours we completed the five mile round tripper. Unless you’ve experienced the damp cold of New Hampshire I can’t explain how brutally cold this hike began before we actually warmed up during the incline! But long story short, the hike was awesome and the views of frozen Lake Winnipesaukee were spectacular.


  1. I love Mt. Shaw and the Belknap range across the lake for a quick hike in the winter especially when it's too cold to hit the big whites to the north. Nice report.

  2. Did you guys celebrate with a snow cone?! :)

  3. It is hard to explain that damp New England cold until you've experienced it. Have a great show season.
