Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Lost my signature desert hat while buttsledding Ethan Pond Trail (it slipped out of my side pocket) and didn't notice it until it was time to prepare for the next hike... If anyone finds it, please email me.

Comments: The trail was broken by 2 barebooters ahead of us, so we had some trail mending and breaking to do. Met the barebooters about 1/3 mi to the summit, they bragged about breaking the trail for us. However, after we explained that they did more damage than good, they apologized. We wore snowshoes the whole hike. It was a beautiful, spring day to hike, no monorail yet, wet snow still allowed for a decent buttsledding. The steep section (ladders covered with snow and in some sections - ice) was not an easy stroll, especially in the spot with almost no branches to hold on to. Our dog made it but with some encouragement. There were no blowdowns on the trail but one huge snow ball about 2' in diameter was sitting right in the middle of the trail - probably dropped from some branch. It will melt down in a few warm days, but I was thinking that if the ball of this size and weight drops on someone’s head, it will not look cute…
