White Sands is correct. I figured it'd be a quick one if I gave away it wasn't snow.

This is the end of one the toughest hike in my life, which I recently completed.

 

Just looking for the name of the mountain.

I hiked in this area on my drive home from NACIS 2017.  A little bit more zoomed out and here's a view from the top.

Close tangnar, but no.

 

Here's a view a little more zoomed out showing a named waterbody. Hint: I used two trails to create a loop in order to bag this summit, the hike up wasn't hard it was just long, the hike down was shorter but it was absolute hell.  Photo show the start of the 4 hr journey back down.

You got it Tom.  What gave it away: the clues, pictures or sat imagery?  I know my next photo was going to show some of the Stowe ski slopes and someone would have gotten it pretty quick then.

 

I hiked the Long Trail up from the base and took the Hell Brook Trail back down. It was after I hiked the Hell Brook that I learned of its legendary status, in which many articles read to only ascend the trail - do not attempt to descend.  http://www.stowetoda...3477f7f0a4.html

 

You're up.

Hi kru,

 

Your post NACIS clue mostly gave it away, plus that the mountain does not quite reach tree line, which eliminated the White Mountains and Adirondacks. So it had to be the slightly lower Green Mountains.

 

The next place is where I went hiking this morning.

This hike passed through a luxuriant tropical forest, including a bamboo grove and large banyan tree.
