 Weeks-Terrace-Cabot-Bulge-Horn Loop 1/13&14
Date(s) Hiked: 1/13, 1/14

Trails(s) Hiked: York Pond, (oh my god they..) Kilkenny, Cabot, Horn Spur, Unknown Pond.

Total Distance: 20 Miles

Difficulty: Very Hard

Conditions: Day 1 ā€“ Foggy 32 deg +/- 5. Day 2 Snowing sometimes heavy 10 degrees up to 20 at the base

Special Required Equipment: 0deg Fahrenheit grade sleeping/camping gear. Stabilicers,

Trip Report:

This was a two day pan handle type loop which included the following interesting peaks: N,M,S Weeks, Terrace, Cabot, Bulge, Horn. Met some interesting people along the way, snagged some pretty nice progressive sunset shots from the Cabot Cabin too! The cabin had 7 Cape Codders staying for the night ā€“ lucky me cause the capacity was 8! Good thing they were there though. I would have been bored out of my mind! I added 4 peaks to my NE100 list with this trip so it was a rousing success

I also got to see a pretty nice array of mountain weather, especially on day 2.

Check out the pics (no great views except the sunset shots Iā€™m afraid) and the more detailed report here: http://www.hoosactunnel.net/nonhoosac/N ... nny070113/

Hey Marc,

Most excellent trip!

We may have seen each other in the cabin! Tom and I did Cabot on Sat via Mt Cabot trail and met all the Cape people on our descent when we stopped in.
I hope it wasn't too bad coming out as I thought the weather was going to get pretty interesting that night.
Congrats on 4 more off the list!

Bill

Puck:

I dont think we saw each other but I'll bet we were close. I did encounter some folks on Bunnell Notch trail heading east between where Kilkenny comes in from the south and cCabot comes in from the north, but that wasn't really on Cabot trail! (I suspect they were heading to the Hatchery).

Thanks, good ol' Alcohol Coke stove :) melted tons of snow with that bad boy :) Not to mention it makes a nice hand warmer!
