Comments
Comments: Once about 3-4 more inches of snow fall, it will be time for snowshoes, but microspikes are still good for now. In the morning, all of the mud on Yellow Jacket and Smarts Brook was frozen, but by the afternoon it had warmed up significantly and there were some deep patches of mud that you don't want to step in. Plenty of stepping stones in most places.

Nice to meet Teal Goat and friend on Jennings. Beautiful clear day with lots of sun :)
