One of the few reasons I'll get up really early is to have a full day of hiking above treeline. The alpine zone, with its stunted trees, amazing plant life and unbeatable views, is far and away my favorite part of the White Mountains. Any time I'm hiking on the eastern side of the Presidential Range I make a beeline for the Alpine Garden Trail in order to check out the flowers blooming there, groundwater seeping up through the rocks, and the wide open vistas to the northern peaks of Adams and Madison. It's a place to linger as long as possible.
