What a fabulous day this turned out to be. Weather was perfect, conditions were great and the group was unsurpassed in fitness, performance and chemistry. Of the many mountaineering trips I have led to the top of Gobblers, this one was truly amazing. We rejoiced at the top and enjoyed the endless views, the calm breeze and the sunshine that warmed not only our bodies but our spirits as well. Our ascent started at approximately 7:00 a.m. and we were back at the trail head by 2:00 p.m. This winter route which is not well known sneaks up on Gobblers from the West Ridge to the North Ridge and then to the summit. The views are amazing and never disappoint. Those who have ventured out on this route in the winter are blessed beyond belief. Thanks to all who joined me on this adventure.
