Comments
Comments: Patchy snow starts around 2600' and by the time I hit 2800' or 2900' the monorail was fairly steady so I put the snowshoes on. However, it was only another 0.1-0.2 to the Carter-Moriah Trail and soon after that I was on dry ledges so the snowshoes came off. Stuck with bare boots the whole way to the summit and back to Stony Brook Trail as it was a mix of dry rock, monorail, mud, and puddles. The only consistent stretch is the final 1/3 of a mile or so before the summit that is all snow except the very top. Thankfully the 'rail isn't very icy and I probably could have gotten away with leaving my spikes and snowshoes at home. No issues with distancing as I had the trail all to myself on this beautiful day.
