Hiked Carrigain on 12/14/14. This was peak 539 for “The Grid over 60”. Hiked with Mike Lynch, Gary Tompkins and Guy Jubinville. Started by hiking the 2 miles of Sawyer River Road that isn’t plowed in the winter in our microspikes.
Once we reached the trailhead we switched over to snowshoes for the rest of the day. Fortunately a couple of hikers had broken out the trail the day before although in the higher elevations it was still pretty soft and needed further packing down.
Once we reached Signal Ridge it was chilly and a bit windy but there were good views with some low hanging clouds.
We didn’t linger long on the summit as it was windy but there was time for a photo.
We had our PBJs and pizza just below the summit in a sunny non windy place.
Back on Signal Ridge there were a few more photo ops.
We wore our snowshoes all the way back to the cars. It was a long 14 mile day. Only 37 peaks left to finish “The Grid over 60”.
