At Charlie's suggestion, we made the shortest drive possible to reach some peaks and did the Mt Percival-Mt Morgan loop CCW. The fresh snow was light, and we wore snowshoes. Only a couple places of difficulty approaching Mt Percival, where I chose the "Summit via caves" route, which was trickier. Temperatures were in the teens and early 20s, cooling and getting windier on the final leg coming down from Mt Morgan.

And in a special message---we send end-of-the-year greetings to all, especially to our loyal readers. See pics also.

Summary: 5.4 miles to Mt Percival and Mt Morgan in Squam Range, 1700' elevation gain, Snowshoes all the way in few inches of powdery, new snow.
