Comments
Comments: The car thermometer read -3 F as Ron P and I started out on the initial road walk. Having no recent info about trail conditions we were delighted to find that someone (thank you so much) had skied the whole route to the Horns Pond Lean To. We bare booted until the junction of the Horns Pond Trail and then put on our snowshoes. The day was perfect! We were afforded stunning views from the summits just before the ski clouded over and it started to lightly snow. Thank you
