Comments: We got a 4 a.m. start hiking the tote Road to the Marston Trail. Bare booting and light traction got us to The Coe Junction where we put on snowshoes for the rest of the day. We encountered varying snow amounts - about 4-6 inches and a little more in drifts. We made our way up to North brother and decided to skirt around it since both Steve and I have hiked North Brother in winters past. We followed an old trail over to Fort for a while before it disappeared into the spruce where Steve managed to find a few exciting spruce traps, nothing major. After tagging Fort, my 99th and Steve's 98th we worked our way back to the T and decided to muster the energy to continue on to Coe. We knew we had one good day with good conditions to complete our Baxter peaks so we went for it. Steve tagged Coe, his 99th and then, eventually South Brother for his 100th NEHHW! It was a long, hard,  and exciting day with friends Dick and Christen. No views from the summits but that didn't stop it from being a beautiful day.
