Hale, to the four of us!

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.

Going up East Osceola

Here are Sandy and Frank, crossing a snow-covered slide area.  Photo taken by Dick.  I have to say, I'm impressed!  What a beautiful shot.
