Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Most of the icy slabs can be avoided by going through the woods. The steep ledgy scramble before the side tr to the summit might be tough for some dogs. We met Zeke, a tiny Skiperkee, who had no problem but Ozzie, a standard poodle, stayed at the bog bridges and waited for us to summit.  
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Lost one nalgene bottle, found it on the way back 
Comments: Light dusting of snow over leaves on lower section of Stoney Brook Tr. Wet, muddy, running water over boulders near the logging road. We put on microspikes at the start of the icy ledges and kept them on to the summit. In and out ot the clouds with snow squalls, temps in the 20's. Good winter shakedown hike.
