Good times in Tuckerman Ravine.

There is a very high threshold that would need to be met when it comes to weather I’d consider too extreme to venture out with my camera.

Though honestly, if I think there’s a photograph to be made I don’t think there is weather too extreme.

And even when the weather doesn’t play nice, like this past Sunday when a couple of friends and I hiked into Tuckerman Ravine on New Hampshire’s Mount Washington, we were still able to have some fun and enjoy a fine spring day in the mountains. High winds, blowing snow, limited visibility and all.

This was our sunrise.

  1. Hi Jeff. Hope all has been well with you?

    Nice image and thanks for posting it.

    As I look at your shot the backpack color really “pops!” Would love to see a closer shot that would take advantage of that. Just a thought.


    1. It really wasn’t that bad, the temps were in the 20’s, so the windchill was probably only in the low negative numbers. I’ve been high in the mountains when it’s that windy and the temps are in the single digits, now that’s cold!

    1. Definitely NOT the sunrise I was hoping for, but when you leave the house at a little after 1 in order to be on the trail by 3 a.m., you make the best of the trip. The forecast was for clearing on the higher summits, which it finally did. As we started our hike down. And by the time we reached the car, not a cloud in the sky. New England weather, gotta love it!

    1. Only in the 20’s, so actually pretty nice compared to a few other times I’ve been high in the mountains with winds like they were on Sunday. Proper clothing is the key to be able to enjoy being out in these kinds of conditions. One of the reasons I’m extremely picking about who I’ll invite along one one of these adventures. “Inexperienced need not apply.” 🙂

    1. Call me crazy, but I do find that the more extreme the weather the better the photograph. Granted, we had hoped it would clear a little earlier so we would have actually seen the sun for our sunrise. But since we did hike all the way up there we decided to make the best of it.
