Comments
Comments: Excellent afternoon for this hike! Very cold and windy on top with low vis but I could see the cairns. Forgot my goggles but covered my eyes with my hand. I guess I was the only snowshoer but I was glad I was on them - there was enough snow but only a little bony on the steeps. Unfortunately, not enough snow to butt-slide back down. Anyway, I passed a few people but not the usual crowds. Woods were really pretty!!!!!
