Comments
Comments: A beautiful day--calm wind. Wonderful conditions. We microspiked the whole way. Snowshoes would be totally appropriate on the WRT where the snow was very unconsolidated, but we managed in microspikes. Post-holing was inevitable--the slightest deviation from the center of the trail, and in the snow we went. If you are going to leave the trail for bathroom purposes, snowshoes become a must.
