||Today was a WONDERFUL day to be out in the White Mountains! My adventure buddy and I began our day early, hoping to be able to reach Willey, Field, and Tom. At the start of the day, the snow had not yet been packed down too well but by the end of the afternoon and many visitors, the snow was very packed.|
After reaching Field, we continued on to Willy. Somewhere about half way between the peaks, it was a challenge to find the trailheads and there were many dead end paths. Tara & Jay were hoping we were familiar with the trail and could help determine the way to go. Soon after, Eagle Eyes and her father came along and fearlessly took the lead for us all! Moving along at a decent pace, we passed by Sean who had broken trail for all of us.
Once we all reached the summit of Willey, we had a sweet summit party! There was a fallen tree at about .2 miles before the summit of Willey but easy to step over. On the decent we were able to enjoy a slide down several sections of the steep trail.
