Hi Folks,

All I can say is that it was a good thing I had my Microspikes with me when I went up to take my pictures this morning. The places I get out of the car to get the right angle were like skating rinks. I would not have been able to walk around on the fields or roads! I can imagine that hiking up to any of the Frankenstein climbs or down the Willard or Webster trails would be brutal without them. FWIW I hate hiking long distances in full crampons, so having the MS in the bottom of my pack is a MUST!
Of course the regular Thursday ice pix are on NEClimbs.com and Facebook, but here are some of the other pix.

VALLEY CYCLING:
Just like needing crampons or Microspikes to get around in the woods, you're going to need studded tires to get around most places on your bike. Shall we say that it's firm but slick almost everywhere right now.

Mountain climbing is the supreme occasion of physical enjoyment. Far from doping, it actually stimulates our senses and intelligence.
