Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Found : one sock on Frost trail. How do you lose a sock in the Winter? 
Comments: Beaver Brook ski trails drier than expected. Bare boots on the Gale river trail through the usual rocks and wet to the end of the reroute. There was a significant monorail on the reroute but it was possible to walk on it some places or alongside it others. Snowshoes necessary from then on. You will snowshoe over a lot of rocks and water and stretches of bare ground up to the view bluff. Essentially all snow from there on : a soft, unstable monorail that I had trouble staying on top of and many postholes when I fell off. Slowing
