Comments
Comments: Last nights cold temps kept the trails stable. Bare booted to Monroe. Wore snow shoes from Monroe to Ike. Bare booted to Pierce & put on spikes at Mizpah Cutoff Jct.

Soft mash potato like snow from Monroe to Ike. A river of water running down the Southern slope of Ike. Monorail on Crawford Path very stable.

Ran into 15 - 20 young students from Sunapee heading for Ike. They are staying at the hut.

Nice meeting Kimberly from Milton. She followed our footsteps to Monroe.

120 mile visibility and another wonderful day out with my main squeeze.
