Four of us went up Hale Tuesday (11/1), via Hale Brook Trail, down
Lend-A-Hand Trail perhaps a mile, then into the woods, bushwhacking our way
up South Hale (aka "Zeale"; elev 3700 ft). Then back out and down to the AMC
Zealand Hut, and out to the truck. Nice day up on Hale; no wind, full sun,
temp around 40. Hiking up over increasing amount of snow on the ground;
several inches still there on top.
