Comments: The original plan was for North & South Twin, which was probably too ambitious for just getting over Covid, but go big or stay home, right? Started out in snowshoes (after the roadwork & bridge crossings of course), but left them at the kiosk on Haystack Rd. Switched to spikes and they worked fine for the rest of the day. Some balling up in the sunlit softened snow. Soon after the river crossing and at the beginning of where the trail really starts to climb, I took a nice long break in the sun and had a snack to fuel up for the work ahead. A half mile later, I adjusted my plan to just bagging N.Twin. No shame, I was still feeling ok. Working hard, but manageable. About a half mile after that, I had to stop gutting it out and had a heart-to-heart with myself. I turned around. All in all, a fine day to be out. Warm, sunny and I had the woods all to myself for the entire day. Not even a snowmobile on Haystack Rd.
