Comments
Comments: Great day to finally go up and get Jefferson with a group and then carry on to Adams and Madison with a few friends. The trails were spikable with the hillsounds taking the lead on the descent of Valley Way. If the snow is wet like it is here in Intervale it stands a good chance of sticking to the ice and being snowshoe-able Monday. Thank you for the car spots and the fun conversation getting these final December peaks behind me. Bring on January!
