Comments
Comments: all trails were well packed. At upper elevations, there was some small amount of drifting, not really a big deal. Was having some balling issues with my snowshoes in places the sun was heating up. I bare booted both in and out all the way to the river crossing, then used snowshoes the rest of the way.

Beautiful day on the mountains, blue sky's light breeze on top. The trip was my 47th and 48th winter summit, winter NH4K list complete...
