|Lost and Found:
|| Epic hike. Microspikes up to Zealand hut. Lots of people who stayed at the hut skied to the hut on Saturday. Still lots of snow on Zealand road. Snowshoes from the hut to Guyot. Microspikes for a short period over Guyot then back to Snowshoes until Bondcliff. Wore microspikes over Bondcliff, then back to snowshoes for the rest of the way. Snow was mashed potatoes at times so Snowshoes were the best choice to use. |
Noticed some deep post-holes along the way at various spots--- Would have been a great place to hide some Easter Eggs, although the Easter Bunny might get stuck way down there!
Pemi & Sunshine enjoyed their Easter Egg hunt along the 23 mile hike!
