Freezing on Bear Mountain

Freezing on Bear Mountain

Richard, David, Loren and Gary on Bear Mountain, Connecticut.

Our friend Gary is visiting for the Holidays and what better way to introduce him to hiking the AT than a quick jaunt in snow up Bear Mountain. The hike went very well but on top of Bear the wind was so strong that a 24 F day turned into a -10 F day. I had to weigh down the table top tripod with a rock to stop the camera from blowing away. We lasted maybe ten minutes up there, then retreated to an Appalachian trail lean-to down off the mountain for lunch.
