|Lost and Found:
||VERY fun loop up over Rowe to Gunstock (fun ridgewalk), then out and back to tag Belknap, then back to Gunstock and down via the Overlook Trail. Followed some old boot tracks on the Overlook Trail - didn't always follow the blazes. Great views! Unfortunately, had to cut the hike short because I broke my snowshoe on Belknap Mtn and had to switch to Hillsounds which I dislike when there's dust on crust/uneven conditions.... still, fun!!! Only saw one person! |
Walking XC trails at end of day - blech!
Picture below is Gunstock from Rowe - always a special view!
