Livermore Road was dry. Snow began on Scaur Ridge Trail but had melted down to just a couple inches on the ridge. There was still some ice underneath, but the sticky snow provided a bit more grip this day, and I never got out my spikes. (First hike since December that I haven't used them at all on a hike!!) As seen through the trees while ascending SRT, North Slide was looking mighty white and slick in the morning, but I think most of the new snow melted out with the warmer temps. On the ridge saw some fresh moose tracks headed for Scaur Peak.
The new, wet snow made descent of South Slide slippery. Did a lot of rock grabbing. Lower part of MTL was very pretty where it runs alongside Slide Brook. Lots of spring flowers blooming and birdies singing. :) Some bog bridges nearing the end of their lives.
