Comments
Comments: Oh how I missed the AT. Continued Northbound from where I left off. Snow depth is deceptive as it starts out at a half an inch and when you reach Becket Mtn, it's 6 inches in places. Becket is only 2180Ft. So, yes, bring the snowshoes that I forgot. We'll be back once the snow melts.
