Comments
Comments: You’re not finishing this hike in book time. Lots of postholing through rotting snow. The sections aren’t long enough to warrant switching n and out of snowshoes, and I’m not sure they’d be able to help anyway. One section of trail was full of ice water...we waxed through barefoot. Mud wasn’t horrible.
