Comments
Comments: Winter sidewalk to Hale summit. Trail breaking on Lend a Hand and A-Z trails where single ski track and single snowshoe tracks were present. Thanks to those ahead of us. The 1.5 ft. of new snow created rigorous trail breaking and snowshoe post holing and trapping. Numerous crossings. The A to Z trail “wanders” off the trail a number of times. Beautiful mid-winter conditions! Winter sidewalk from Mt.Tom to Crawford Notch.
Fun times ;-) Snowstorm and BadDaddy
