Winter Camping NH

We drove up Saturday morning to Sandwich, NH and hiked in about 1 mile. The snow was hard and not too deep. So we didn’t need snowshoes. After dropping off our gear at camp, we hiked 5 miles round-trip to Beede Falls. The falling water created a wall of ice and we could crawl between this ice wall and the rock face of the falls.

That night was below 10 degrees. So most of the scouts stayed in the loft of the hunting cabin instead of their tents or snow trenches. We kept a fire going using wood and some peat logs that we brought. So the cabin stayed warm. A bobcat came be the cabin to check us out but didn’t stay long enough for us to get a photo.
