    Not so much just winter but a tidbit of advice that has helped me in the past is that the Northern Presis have a bad habit of getting a bad fog in the morning. I’ve been caught in it on a night hike, and other times I just steered clear. So if you plan on leaving Madison hut, or just getting up there nice and early remember there is a good chance you can’t see cairn to cairn. until some fog burns off.

    May not be as relevant in winter, I’ll pay attention this year for it.

      An excellent lead-in to the next article in the series which focuses, in part, on the microclimates of the White Mountains and how there is no such thing as a global weather forecast for the entire area.

        …other than it will probably be bad. Of course, that depends on your definition of “bad”!

        Ah the famous ‘optional extension.’

        “Bonus adventures” and “optional extensions” are where all the good stories come from. Otherwise, it’s: “We hiked XX miles and we were tired.”
