Canon Mtn. With Julie H. 1/25/15

A fine hike in very cold weather.  Neither of us quite fetched the summit.  My body and my gear both need some tuning.  This was really serious winter hiking.  Temperature in the low single digits and a stiff wind blowing up near the top.  Microspikes got me to within 1/2 mile of the top but beyond that something more aggressive was required.  Gorgeous view of Lonesome Lake on the way down, and Franconia Ridge across the way, through the trees.
