Ahh, late Fall! The leaves are hanging on by a thread and the brisk weather has caused the crowds to dissipate.
This is our favorite season to hike in the Whites. Cold mornings allow for that extra appreciation of a warm cup of coffee, and even cooler evenings mean whiskey to warm the belly and solid sleep to fuel up for the next days walk. Being alone in the woods at this time of the year really allows for a deep appreciation of the vastness of the wilderness that surrounds us and we use these adventures to reconnect with nature and remind ourselves what lays beyond our doors.
