Mt Belknap 2017

Yesterday, three years ago, Brian and I hiked up to the Belknap summit in a cloud bank with high winds and no views – even from the tower.

Today was a better story, much better views and foliage was reasonable but not at peak yet. The view from an outlook that we completely missed 3 years ago and didn’t even see offered a good view of the lakes.

The view from the summit fire tower was spectacular with minimal haze, although the wind chill was a bit rough.

I captured a communications technician up high on the microwave tower; definitely not something I would even consider attempting to climb. He was harnessed in and safe but looked uncomfortable in the high winds.
