A few weeks back, I took a trip to do some hiking on Cold Mountain, in North Carolina. The goal for the trip was to get in some training with heavy packs and elevation gain, and hopefully a little practice with our cold weather camping systems. It was a great trip, with some amazing views, and plenty of hard work. It even got pretty cold the second night. The highlight was probably waking up the morning of the second day and finding that we were above the clouds.
If you want all the details, you can read my full Trip Report on SummitPost.
My pictures from the trip can be found here.
Mark posted his pictures here.
Also ran into another Flickr user while up on top of Cold Mountain, who had a much nicer camera, you can see his pictures from the weekend here.
