Looking up the old logging road to Ladd Mountain
Route: Unknown trail
Trail had maybe 2" of frozen crud topped by another 2" of powder. A bit uneven for the first portion, but after the right turn junction, there was more traffic, resulting in a better surface. Nice sunrise over Winnisquam Lake.
Single digit temperatures, but it was surprisingly bearable to hang out at the vista for awhile, thanks to no wind.

The sunrise over Lake Winnisquam from the Ladd Mountain ledge vista
Directions to trailhead: Take Route 104 East from I-93 in New Hampton. Shortly after passing Wickwas Lake on the right, take a right onto Meredith Center Road. Shortly thereafter, take a right onto Chemung Road. A few minutes later, take a right to stay on Chemung Road (where Camp Waldron Road goes straight). Awhile after the road turns to dirt, Randlett Pond will be visible on the right. On the left, there will be a blocked off logging road with limited room for parking. The trail starts on the logging road.
