|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Nothing new, compared with my trail report last month! |
||When you can’t see your approximately 100lb dog but you hear a hiker yelling “Off me! Get off me!,” it is rude to tell off the hiker as if the hiker was wrong and the unrestrained jumping/barking/growling dog was right. Very rude. |
|Lost and Found:
||Soft trail. Those of us in snowshoes were packing down the trail nicely, those who wore light traction were postholing. Rather significantly. I was happy to quickly snowshoe down and away from that mania!!|
Although the forecast was for significant snow last night, there was a trace at the trailhead and about 3-4” new snow on Starr King and Waumbek, with easily managed drifts in between the two peaks.
