Lost and Found
Lost and Found: reason for this post: found a Wentworth Inn room key card at the Mt. Tom Spur juncture; dropped it off at the Highland Center-->if you are the one who lost it and are wondering where it went missing, now you know :)  
 
Comments
Comments: Compared to last weekend, a much easier affair; while it snowed almost the entire morning, the fluffy flakes did not accumulate too much; I was first one on trail, first heading to Mt. Tom, then over the ridge to Willey, return to Field and descended via Avalon. Less people on the trail today than last weekend, but the trail was mostly still broken out (I assume no winds over night). About 50% of people in snowshoes; the other 50% in a mixture of microspikes and crampons. Many of the latter were slipping and sliding in the steep sections (regardless of whether ascending or descending). With all the powdery fresh snow on top, there is no/hardly any traction to be found. Was glad for my snowshoes; no slipping and sliding problems. Bare-booters did not make much of a mess as the trail is consolidated below the fresh snow.
