It was early November in the Northeast, but by the looks of the picture above you would think it was the middle of January. On November 7th my dad and I took a hike up the Whiteface Mountain Memorial Highway (about 5 miles in length). The clouds gradually cleared out during our ascent and by the time we reached the summit the sun was brightly shining on the snow. We met all kinds of people out enjoying the weather, going up and down on their skis or snowshoes. After enjoying some of the views from the "Lake Placid Turn", I buckled my boots and stepped in my skis for the ride down to the bottom. My dad had his own form of transportation, a purple plastic sled. He is on a mission to create a new sport. He calls it the "Snow Skeleton". All in all, a good day in the mountains.

My favorite waterfall photos are often taken while standing right in the water, and this one was no exception. This helps to get the viewer closer to the action and make them feel as if they’re about to get wet themselves.
During our quarantine, Hilary decided to do a bit of baking and make one of our favorite cookie recipes. We usually treat ourselves to bringing these on annual camping trips with friends and they're always a huge hit!
We worked our way past the big lines on Colden toward the Matrix, something I hoped to lead this year after following it in March of 2019. Nothing looked appealing until we turned our gaze to Avalanche Mountain Gully.
