Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Found a black polartec headband on Gale River Trail and left it there figuring it belonged to the only other person I saw all day doing an out and back to Galehead. I'm assuming he saw it and picked it up :) 
Comments: Trails packed out nicely with the exception of some post holes on the North Twin Trail. Some minor drifting on the top of North Twin Trail and again on the Twinway. Unbelievable amount of snow up there! The winds were no where near as high as NOAA forecasted. Very warm day, snow was very soft and sticky coming down, if warmth and sun perisists snow shoes will be the only way to go :). Not sure why I decided to get picked up at 5 corners instead of Beaver Brook but hey, it was a nice day for a road walk! This hike concludes my single season W48 and 3rd round NH 48!
