Ascent Trip Report

Yesterday Richard Blank and I had a great day climbing Mt. Tecumseh in Waterville Valley, NH. Richard completed his first winter hike. We started at 9:38am at 38° temp., Mount Tecumseh Trailhead (Waterville Valley Ski Area), and returned to the trailhead at 12:59pm with a 72° temp., just before winter ended. The sky was clear enough to see in the distance the snow cap of Mt Washington from the summit. What a great day to end winter.
