The White Mountain Report: Apr 17th, 2014
WOW It's hard to make the change from winter to spring. I have had my Thursday's planned out for the past 6 months, up in Crawford Notch to take pictures of ice, but here I am with nowhere specific to go. I usually feel pretty happy about it, but this year I'm kind of sad. Mainly due to the fact that I was really kind of getting on-it the last month or so. All those trips of to Willoughby really got me all wound up about climbing harder ice this year. While I did reach a crescendo-finish for the season, I found myself wanting more. [sigh] Another 2 weeks of the big ice would have been really nice. I guess I'll just have to make my plans to get it on earlier next year. Nothing wrong with that I suppose. [wry grin]
