Heybrook Lookout

Through extenuating circumstances, we managed to arrive at the trailhead around 4 p.m., just a few minutes before it stopped raining. The trees dripped on us, though, as we climbed up the muddy, slushy trail.

But if you look up, you don't notice the mud.

1 - Heybrook Ridge Trees

By the top of the ridge, a foot of snow covered the ground -- but only a couple muddy inches on the trail. Just when we thought we'd never get there (after about 45 minutes), the tower appeared through the trees.

And the clouds parted, even though it was snowing lightly.

Just don't look down. . .
