Comments
Comments: Nicely packed monorail starting after second crossing. Micros on at this point and duration of hike-snowshoes along for the ride. The trails do have postholing throughout but easily avoidable. The snow pack is still very deep and there are spruce traps. There was one in particular just after Mt Field that was at least four feet deep.
