Mt. Moosilauke – Hikes on Easter and Tax Day


Spring brings a lot of changes in the weather, and these are amplified in the mountains. The last two Sundays have seen: 1) horrible, cold weather with 60 mph winds, and 2) gorgeous weather, and mild spring breezes with 60 degree temperatures. I had the opportunity to visit Mt. Moosilauke with my friend Rick Morse in both.


I’ve written much about Mt. Moosilauke – I’ll let the photos from these hikes speak for themselves. Enjoy.
