Giant Mountain Wilderness, Adirondacks, NY
Although it was a pretty cold start at Roaring Brook Falls, the day held promise. After some stops along the trail, I finally broke out of the the forest at the end of a particularly steep section to the mostly snow free bedrock on Giant's Nubble. Between the exertion, the open rock, and the warming day, it was pretty toasty up here, and I was soon stripping off extra winter encumbrances. Across the valley was this view of Round Mountain and the Dix Range. In March, winter was a long way from over up here.
