|Lost and Found:
||Spikes car to car. There were a couple inches of powder up to Guyot. No major postholes but trail below is a little choppy up to Zealand. After Zealand was much more impacted by the warmup last week so|
Made for slower going. Open area of guyot had lots of snowdrifts. Snowshoes could have been used here for ten minutes and would have been completely blow over again shortly after. Again couple inches through the bonds. Walk out was smooth til the wet areas down low were a little annoying with multiple sections of wet/muddy trail. Lincoln woods solid walk out in the dark.
