Mt Sugarloaf, Massachusetts

This is just a super short post but there was no way I could not mention it as the view was phenomenal.

One cold and incredibly snowy afternoon, a lovely friend of mine and I decided to trek up a mountain as a last-minute type of decision. I am so glad we did as the harsh weather conditions and many slips and falls made the final view so rewarding.

Mt Sugarloaf is located I believe on the outskirts of Amherst. It is not a very tall mountain but does take a while to get up. There is an offical path for hikers however as it was so snowy the path was covered so we had to grip on to whatever tree or rock we could find to make it up to the top of the mountain.

Now seeing as it was a last-minute decision to climb the mountain I was wearing material Nikes in white meaning after 3 minutes my feet were soaked. Half-way up I literally could not even feel them anymore however mama ain’t raised no quitter and all that.

It took us about half an hour to get up and about 25 minutes to get back to the bottom, we took a different route to get back down as we walked down the road which was obviously not fit for driving as the snow nearly reached half-way up my knee and I am by no means short at 5 ft 7! It was a very steep road so that is why we didn’t take it on the way up.

Honestly I feel like all the snow made the view look even more breathtaking, it was truly beautiful and the pictures that were taken looked magical ( Thank you to my best friendĀ for taking the wonderful pictures!) From shouting christmas carols in the cold air to falling over multiple times, it was such a memorable day. I am also extremely happy I didn’t get frostbite!
