Comments
Comments: traces of snow started right at trailhead with pretty full trail coverage after second water crossing. depths increase to a 2-4 inches once on the ridge. some crusty ice on avalon trail and on willey range between field and tom. put on traction for descent of avalon spur and kept it on until the last 3/4 of a mile or so before the parking lot. the summits cleared off late, but still beautiful up on the ridge with all of the snow laden trees and woods. did get some nice views from mt. tom as things were clearing. felt a lot like winter. went from shorts and sleeveless last week to frozen nose and facial hair today. love it.
