Comments
Comments: After Mt. Rowe, I hiked Whiteface Mountain for #6 on the Belknap 12. The trail was mostly dry until about halfway to the top, when it started raining. The trail became wet after that, but thankfully there wasn't a whole lot of rock (potential for slipping). Despite the rain, the cloud deck was high, so there were some good views to the south from the open summit, and great views from the ledge just to the north. Really cool to see the rain moving into and out of different areas.

6/12 done! All that's left is pretty much the whole interior of the range.
