Comments
Comments: 1 mile in to the hike two White Tail Deer crossed right in front of me about 50 feet away. Man, they made some incredible noise running through the woods. I heard them a ways off and waited for them. About an inch of snow on the ground with bare spots. Snow was frozen. Carr's Pond was a thin sheet of ice. Not safe for sure. With this snow storm tonight this place will be beautiful to snow shoe or just hike through if not enough snow for snow shoeing. Cold today at 28 degrees for most of the hike. Good Boots with Vibram is all you need.
