    Default Snowshoeing Mt. Agamenticus - 3/13/14

    Shawn and I took a few hours today and hiked Mt. Agamenticus. It was a cold and windy day but the fresh snow was nice. We were the only ones out.

    The hike in was great. We were the first ones through the new fresh powder. The wind had knocked most of it off of the trees but there was still some up there.

    We found lots of animal tracks. This must have been one large bunny.

    The snow drifts were everywhere from the wind. Some parts of the trail were bare ice and other parts were very deep.

    Bare ice at the top, swept clean by the wind.

    Here you can see some of the snow blowing up and around.

    The barn at the top was recently redone. A little bit later and the light would have been awesome for photos.

    We found some tracks. After lots of discussion, contacting expert biologists, and referencing our guide books, we concluded that this track was from a 430lb mountain lion.

    And of course, what trip would be complete without some shots of the truck! We had to do some mild offroading to get to the base. The road was unplowed but traveled. Ground clearance was necessary.

    I love the photo with the Birches.
    We are an automobile hand car wash and detail shop that customizes it’s services to the needs of our customers: that's The Auto Spa in Plymouth, NH. For some people, automobile detailing means bringing the commuter car in a couple of times a year for maintenance-level treatment: auto waxing, wheel cleaning, UV protection, exterior trim care, and other services that are a few steps above the basic car wash routine. For those who are passionate about their cars, it means getting a complete auto detail every month or even every week. Then there are customers who are selling or have just purchased a car and need a reconditioning-level detail: clay bar treatment, scratch removal, the works. www.autospanh.com

    Traction, articulation, and gearing make a good off-road rig. Just a big lift, wide mud tires, and a winch simply do not ;)

    We started off hiking but soon realized that with the depth of the snow in areas and the ice, snowshoes with built in crampons were a must have ;)

    Those are some great pics. I'm itching for the spring to be here so my wife and I can take my son on some hikes up in the mountains. Just a little to cold for a 5 month old right now.
