We chose this night for the full moon but due to overcast conditions, there was hardly any moon beyond a glow through the clouds. But we hiked nonetheless.
Starting out at 6:15, we went up the White Dot Trail from the Ranger Station.
After a few minutes we headed back down the trail and enjoyed the fireworks that the town of Jaffrey had scheduled for our hike.
The Shoot was a little tricky on account of ice, but we all safely made it through.
There was some ice on the trail, but we didn't need any crampons or stabilicers.
It was a cold night but once we started hiking, we warmed up quickly.
Soon we were at the top where we enjoyed some hot chocolate we had brought along.
We finished the hike around ten o'clock and bid each other good night.
