Comments
Comments: A beautiful day in the Whites! Very Spring-like conditions. The first two miles, or so, are a mix soil, dirt, rocks, and mud, whereupon snow and ice are added. Highly recommend waterproof boots for the mud and water on the trail. Around 2,500ft there's a solid snow pack, that is interspersed with ice, which turns into a very solid snow pack around 3,000ft. Snowshoes went for a ride, crampons were all that were needed today.
