|Lost and Found:
||A fine day. A couple inches of light snow from lot, increasing to 10-12" at rail junction. Still not enough for snowshoes as there were evident rocks and water breaks making ss.s awkward; we did microspikes all the way. Nice boot trail at end of day.|
Terrific views of gleaming white Presies from summits!! Excellent views from Cannon to Bretton Woods South from Martha as cloud cover finally moved in.
As noted, ledges leading to OH summit are icy/snowy, while doable, are a significant hazard.
Another Fabulous day.
