Squam Range Again

Scott Stuart and I drove north on the day after Thanksgiving to hike Mt Morgan and Mt Percival, with an additional jaunt to West Rattlesnake at the end. We did the clockwise route in ~2-3″ of fresh snow; no need for traction. Pretty nice snowy landscape, but opaque clouds. No views due to hanging clouds; what we might have seen is here. After returning to the trailhead about 12:15, we walked up to West Rattlesnake, thinking that the lower elevation might afford us a view of Squam Lake. No joy. Then, as we were starting the drive home, we got a view from the car, confirming that the cloud ceiling was about 50′!

Summary:
~ 7.5 miles, Mt Morgan, Mt Percival, West Rattlesnake, no views due to LOW clouds, 5 hours
