Comments
Comments: Quick hike on a super nice spring day. Barebooted to the evergreens then microspikes. There is a thin icy monorail before SK and a much more pronounced degrading monorail heading to Waumbek.Mashed potatoes throughout. Snowshoes along for the ride this afternoon. If I was to hike this again they would stay in the vehicle. It was nice briefly chatting with several out enjoying this fine spring day. I lost count after 23.. 571/576
