Hillman's Highway Hike

I've hiked up to Tuckermans Ravine almost every year since I was in 8th grade. In 2014, Ben, James, and I drove up late Friday night and slept in the parking lot at Pinkham Notch. We woke up the next morning to blowing snow and freezing temperatures.

After ascending the Tuckerman Ravine trail, the weather had gotten worse and the avalanche danger was high. We decided to cancel our plans to ski in the ravine and hiked up to Hillman's Highway instead. The snow was variable and chalky but it was really cool to be up in the mountains in the middle of the snowstorm.
