Comments
Comments: A beautiful day in the mountains - cold, but mild winds and a bluebird sky. We didn't see a single person all day and kept asking ourselves "where is everyone?" Recovering from Super Bowl festivities? The big snow from Feb. 1 & 2 was booted in and nicely consolidated until just below the ledges and on the lower half of Dicey's Mill Trail. Microspikes were perfect in these two sections. In between, consolidation was incomplete and snowshoes were the order of the day. The 1-2" of fresh snow from the previous night had drifted in spots on the Rollins Trail and we did our best to reform the trough with our three pairs of snowshoes.
