This was taken on July 2, 2006 of White Mountain Peak as seen 500 yards from the right of the established trail about 3.5 miles into the hike, or about 4 "hiking" miles from the mountain. This is about a mile past the Bancroft Research Facility and just past the astronomical observitory at about 12,800 ft in altitude.
Summit of White Mountain from the south June 1990. Rather than do a 14 mile day hike I decided to camp about 3 1/2 miles into the hike, about 1 1/2 miles above the lower Barcroft facility at about 12,500'. They were just preparing to open the facility for the season and I was given a cup of tea and permission to climb the peak.
