Lost and Found
Lost and Found:  
Comments: The snow is softening. There are many postholes from bare booters. Some postholes in to spruce traps were about three feet deep. The surface of the snow in some sections is rough and requires some care in foot placement to avoid tripping. Snowshoes are recommended especially to the north of Mt Pierce. Up to Mt Pierce one can generally stay on the surface with MicroSpikes if one walks the middle of the compacted trail.
Met and conversed with many hikers today. Great views from many vantage points including both summits. One man was hiking the Presidential traverse today and intends to hike Owl's Head tomorrow to complete all NH 48 peaks this month.
