Comments
Comments: The only trail I used that seemed to have seen little if any use this winter/spring was scar. Very slow going on little used trails due to soft snow. Randolph path required snowshoes. Everything else was barebootable with or without spikes. I diverted to the top of JQ Adams as there was a good snowfield that made for an easy route to the top. There was a good coating of new snow, but it should not last long. This was a great day to be above treeline.
