Comments
Comments: Original plan to hike to Tucks changed to summit attempt due to beautiful weather conditions. Old Jackson Road couple of easy walk around blowdowns. Nelson Crag was dry for about 1/4 mile then snow. Bear booted, dont think
snow shoes would have helped do to water running under trail, very unstable trail collapsing. Had micros but snow too soft. Made it only to view point of Carters & Wildcat then completely lost trail as depths increased. Saw no sign of anyone being on this trail for a while. Saw no one all day.
