"2 semaines solo de pure plaisir à faire du hiking à différentes places dont les Whites Moutains. Pour cette série je voulais faire Avalon, Willey, Field et ensuite arriver sur Tom pour le coucher du soleil. La journée était parfait pour cela. Aucun nuage, ni rien! Et finalement, à mon arriver sur Tom, des gros nuages se sont mis de la partie. Donc je suis repartis sans avoir de photo de coucher de soleil.... Mais j'ai mes 4 sommets! :)" - fsoucy76, Sep 27, 2018
"Solo. 7/48. As I was driving to the trailhead this morning, big angry grey clouds were looming over the mountains I decided to bite the bullet & just go for it, hoping it would clear off.

The Willey Range Tr segment between Ethan Pond Tr and the Willey summit was unrelenting in steepness and proved to be quite tiring, even with the help of wooden ladders.

"First time all the way up the steep side, tried and failed last winter after mega snowstorm. Now I realize why. But it is a good hike and doing the 'ladders' a must. Lunch on the Outlook is great. But clouds would not go away so views were a little muted. Checked out Ethan Pond on the way down. Camp site was busy." - Alohabuffy, Aug 26, 2017
