Comments
Comments: Great day for this hike. Started out with little to no snow on trail until intersection of Bald Peak. At this point snow depths ranged from six to ten inches. I barebooted until 3200 and switched to snowshoes. At the summit of N.Kinsman the trail turned from rototilled to a nice snowshoe track to S.Kinsman. Nice day to take a break from Fishn' Jimmy
