Comments
Comments: The Bridle Path was in great shape. Cold, slightly crusty snow covering a solid hard pack at 7:10 am. Any tracks from earlier this week were completely covered over by strong winds. The ridge walk from Lafayette to Little Haystack was a mix of exposed rock, rime, and unpacked powder. The best part was NO ICE! I assume this week's snow covered what people were reporting earlier. The water crossings on Falling Waters are beginning to break down but some are still completely snow bridged. By 11:00 the heavy foot traffic and warm temps were beginning to turn the trail into mashed potatoes. There was one downed tree which we crawled under but a taller person could probably step over its lowest point without going too far off trail.

Thanks again to SA and HA for another great hike!
