... on this trip, given it is spring and moving into summer. In fact, today was the first day of summer.
We were also informed that the Tuckerman Ravine trail is highly dangerous (because of the snow), particularly if you are unfamiliar with the terrain. Weighing up the want to see snow versus the desire to live, we decided to take the Lion's Head trail. Hakuna mutata!
The distance itself was only 4.5mi/7.2km; it was the ...
