Comments
Comments: We went up relatively late on Saturday morning, and from previous NETC reports, we started out in snowshoes. Frankly, I would have been happy to wear them all the way to the summit and back, but a member was having difficulty, so we switched to microspikes, and we did just fine. From the cabin to the summit, the snow is not packed down, but even then, we did just fine. The underlying trail is a highway. Now, what will happen this week with the higher temperatures, I do not know.

We saw quite a number of other hikers, most were carrying snowshoes and wearing microspikes.

Folks, we are all potty trained. If you need to urinate, please step off the trail and coverage it when you're done.
