Cannon Mountain

I hiked Cannon Mountain today, my first and probably last 4000-footer of the season.

It had been a cold night, dipping below freezing in NH. By the time I reached the hiker's lot off Exit 34B of Route 93, it was about 55 F. Still, I was concerned that there'd be ice along the trail, and I wasn't wrong. But it wasn't too bad, and I made it to the top.

The Kinsman Ridge Trail has a number of slides on the way up. Some of them are hard to avoid. This first one was pretty easy to bypass. There was no ice at this point, which helped.
