Comments
Comments: For an "abandoned" trail its pretty well marked. Patch up snow up near the col with more snow on the ridge top. Plenty of recent moose sign. By sticking just south of the ridge top we avoided the worse snow sections. Give it a week and expect snow will not be an issue

Nice day for a hike, the understory is just starting to green up. Saw a couple green shoots. No ticks found but expect its just a respite.
