Comments
Comments: Did this one with Colin and Cesar. Wasn’t sure what we’d find after the recent storm but was happy the road had been plowed. Stopped by the Border Patrol office to let them know we’d be in there hiking. We were able to get to the base of the road leading up to a higher starting point (Mile 12). There was about 20” of fresh snow that made the trip a slow one. Followed the open woods up before heading into the woods towards the junction between Kennebago Divide and White Cap. Slow going as route finding towards KD was made more challenging by walls of snow-covered trees. Climb up to WC was easy - gradual ascent and open woods. Had planned to add Boundary but didn’t get to WC until 3:00 PM (soaked head to toe from all the snow) and decided getting down to the swath would be slow and we didn’t want to try and find/navigate the “short cut” down from the swath in the dark. Made good time back to the car - lots of snowmobile activity while we were up there.
