We spent a week in a chalet in the White Mountains of New Hampshire between Christmas and New Years. The weather (freezing rain, and eventually just rain) discouraged hiking on the bigger peaks, so Mount Chocorua was the most ambitious summit of the trip. We mainly stuck to valleys and notches; hiking into the Greeley Ponds and up to Nancy Pond were the highlights. Hopefully winter shapes up in the Whites in 2012, so that we have another opportunity at bagging some peaks in the snow in February or March. Have a great start to the new year everyone!
