Comments: Lonesome Lake, Fishin Jimmy, Kinsman Ridge (Southbound) Kinsman Ridge (Northbound), Hi-Cannon

This was a wonderful day. The most challenging part is the last .5 mile on Kinsman Ridge going up to Cannon, which is rough, steep and slippery with some semi-exposed spots. Other than that, a couple icy spots on Fishin Jimmy to maneuver. KInsman Ridge Northbound towards Cannon is drifty and less well broken out than Fishin Jimmy and Kinsman Ridge towards the Kinsmans, which was actually really nice with the soft powder. I saw plenty of people with just microspikes today, but it is deep enough that the snowshoers ruled the day!
