Last Saturday, we finally had good snow, good weather and free time to enjoy the outdoors again. Short of a New Year's/birthday stroll through the beautiful DuPont State Forest in North Carolina, we hadn't gotten out since our Cadillac sunrise summit.
On this outing we headed to Camden Hills State Park. We avoided the trail and used the Televator feature on our snowshoes and headed straight up the side of Mount Megunticook. We had spectacular views of Megunticook Lake, Camden Snow Bowl and the Atlantic.
Never shying away from an adventure, our route down was the steepest area we could descend without rappelling or down climbing with crampons and ice axes. Our descent was a mixture of shoeing, skiing and sledding.
