Comments
Comments: I think the previous night’s rain had frozen into the snow pretty well. Path was firm enough and easy to follow in the flatter parts earlier in the morning but that snow was mashed potatoes on the way back. The steep part and diagonal crossing over the ravine on Pine Bend Brook was SLICK; I read another report of one who chose to turn around there and I wonder if I may have fared better for doing the same. Even with spikes and trekking poles, the snow on the steep slanted part was slick and frozen enough that I took a lengthy slide into the brook bed and down a ways off the trail. HUGE thanks to Karen and Brian who saw my fall from below and made sure I was ok and patched up. Always great to meet such kind people on a hike! Trail was good between the summits and well broken up by the afternoon.
