For anyone who was been watching the weather lately, you know that it has been bone chilling cold up on Mount Washington. Han has had his eye on doing a winter presidential traverse for some time. However, due to frigid weather conditions recently we had to postpone his original trip dates. Fortunately, Han did have a flexible schedule and when it looked like we could catch a break in the weather we decide to go for it. Although it was still cold we were able to pull off the feat. Han also wanted to stand on top of every peak along the way which adds another stage of difficulty. Between the cold bitter weather, tough bullet proof snow, and long days. Han was able to reach his goal.
