Lost and Found
Lost and Found: My love of hiking...found once I returned to my car and started thinking what I will hike tomorrow  
 
Comments
Comments: Tough day, 4-6 inches of powder with balancing on underlying monorail. Bad decision not to have snowshoes. I always bring my snowshoes :(. If first group tomorrow wears snow shoes my powder
Tracks will get smoothed out. I added one post hole for spruce trap but rest is just powder tracks. Bring snowshoes for everything past the notch tomorrow and enjoy a little return of winter
