Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Please don't bring your dogs on the Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail right now. I was glad I left Madison home. Lots of dangerous iceflows.

Comments
Comments: Just a dusting of snow on the mountains. No need for snowshoes until next storm. Barebooted most of the day with the exception of coming down the Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail. Lots and lots of ice from a little above the Gem Pool until a little below the hut. Use extreme caution. Microspikes were just barely enough. Full crampons would have been overkill. Light crampons would probably be ideal.
