Comments: What a great day to go above tree line, many had the same idea. The hike up Air Line was very nice and I chatted with a few people on the way up and at the summit (thank you to the man who shared his dark chocolate KitKat), there was a line of people on the last half mile to the summit, so pretty busy today. The wind was blowing from the south so we decided to come down Lowe's Path and veered off on Spur. Below the camp, only one snowshoe track in about 2 feet of snow so we had a ball sliding down until we reached Hincks, after that the barebooters did a number on the trail. Overall, we had a great time in the Whites (as is most of the time).
