Comments
Comments: Somebody call Wonalancet PD, we stole two peaks for January grid! The forecast today scared most away, as evident by only seeing four people on trail all day. The predicted wind forecast was completely wrong for today! The only wind was my heavy breathing trying to keep pace with Ms. Mix-a-lot. Still a pretty cold day to be out, but nowhere near as bad as anticipated. I had a vest and base layer on all day. Trails are like super highways right now. Snowshoes got a ride. There are a few drifty spots but only last less than a hundred feet. Did not feel I needed the shoes at all for this one, until Tuesday anyways. Brilliant cobalt blue skies, with commanding views into the Pemi and Presi's that only the Child of the Bear can give. Ran into another NETC contributer, Emily, just Emily, kind of like Prince ;)
