The Alpine Zone

 They call it the alpine zone "on top of the mountain area" because it is cold. They also call it that because the trees and wildlife there is very sensitive. One needs to be very careful not to harm the flora at high elevations.

On sunday, I climbed the White Mountains in New Hampshire. Particularly, Little Haystack, Mt. Lincoln, and Mt. Lafayette . We started at 2am in the morning. Headlamps guided our way past a waterfall in the middle of the night. It was quite the experience and unfortunately we didn't see the sunrise but it was otherwise a really great experience.
 I handled the winds by insulating myself in a trash bag. Probably could have spent $10,000 buying real hiking gear from some fancy store. But I'm young and still have my strength.
