Comments
Comments: Was an absolutely beautiful blue bird day! Started around 7, finished before 11. I was able to bareboot until North and South junction. From there on I used snowshoes, they definitely helped with the steep ascent of North Hancock, then provided the needed guidance with the drifts between N & S. There were post holes across the way from north to south most likely from the warmer days last week. Couldn’t have asked for a better day to knock out the Hancock’s!
