Comments: Crawford Path, Webster Clift Trail, Webster Cliff Trail to #302 (Saco Lake)

It was a solo two-day trip starting at the Mt. Clinton Road parking lot on April 13. Slept at the Naumann Tentsite. No one else at the campsite. A crew was busy repairing the Mizpah Hut. Most tent platforms were covered or semi covered by at least 1/2 foot of snow. Beautiful night, not very cold. Did the whole trip bare-boot with few problems. I saw only one person with snowshoes coming down Crawford Path, most others (not many) with micro-spikes or bare-boot. I could have used snowshoes on parts of the Webster Cliff Trail going down but did fine without them. I had to stop and think the climb from the stream after crossing the Silver Cascade (the stream required a bit of a jump!). The climb, not very much, was covered with ice and difficult.
