In my previous post, I wrote about our hike to Zealand hut. The next day, blessed with more perfect weather, we headed for Mount Willard. As you can see, there was still plenty of snow on the trail, and once again, crampons were necessary.
This is a climb straight up. It takes about an hour and a half if you are pokey like me.
The views are definitely worth the slog, and it was warm enough for us to eat our lunches on the rocks. This was our view: Crawford Notch way below us.
This red squirrel scurried over almost as soon as we took out our sandwiches. He or she must get a lot of hand-outs.
