Even though it was supremely nice here, we decided to head partway up the remaining bit of trail to the top of Eisenhower before stopping for our lunch break. I wanted a better perspective on the scenery, and that would be afforded if we were a little higher up than down in the col. We therefore made our way up the steep trail, climbing past iced cairns and around alternately icy, snowy and rocky switchbacks. Tricky in snowshoes.

After finding a suitable spot with views and spots for bums, we stopped and had lunch. Pu took a bit of extra time, photographing this and that down at the col.

We could see little dark wisps of a new type of cloud off to the north. As we watched, they quickly made their way over to the mountains of the Northern Presidentials, whisping around and draping themselves about them. These were no doubt the precursor to the change in weather that was coming. And, even though they heralded bad weather, their presence enhanced the scenic beauty of the peaks, adding some flair and drama.
