Winter Hike: Azure Mountain

Last month, I hiked my first mountain in the winter. I was prepared, and it was not a long hike at all. I hiked Azure Mountain, in the Adirondacks. The hike was only 2 miles round trip, and had a firetower at the top. The weather was a little chilly and overcast. Once we reached the summit, it was incredibly windy, we didn’t stay up for long. Enough to get some photos and enjoy the view.

Being out in the Adirondacks made me wish for spring and summer, I cannot wait to get up on more high peaks this year! This mountain was not difficult at all, and honestly would have been cake if there wasn’t snow. I had micro spikes on, which was incredibly helpful going down. I only slipped and fell once, which isn’t too bad!

Here are some more photos of the hike, enjoy! (All photos were taken with my iPhone X, I didn’t bring my camera along.)
