Comments
Comments: Quick hike of Mt Moriah into the clouds this morning. Stony Brook is mostly clear of any monorail until just about 2nd crossing. It's thin and inconsistent. Towards the end of SB monorail,snowpack is more pronounced and deeper but is degrading quickly. Carter Moriah has stretches of monorail while soft was supportive. Along the ridge there is alot of exposed rock as well. Snowshoes and micros along for the ride today. Still glad to carry though. It was nice chatting with 3 fellow Wanderers today on the trail. 575/576. Mt Garfield for the finish🙂
