Comments
Comments: This was more bushwhacking than flowing trails. Because it looks like it was all snow at altitude Sunday night, all signs of previous tracks were gone. Plan and simple, from the Mt. Tom Spur all the way to Ehtan Pond trail was a bitch to follow. No tracks and not nearly enough blazes. We were of trail more than on. Got all 3 peaks but took 9 hrs. We were seeing as much as 10" of new, heavy wet snow. But a gorgeous day. At Mt. Tom Spur, it was snowshoes the rest of the day.
