|Lost and Found:
||As the previous report mentioned, Gorge Brook is in tremendous shape. Delightful snowshoeing. The last stretch before the summit on the Gorge Brook side is quite bare, but short enough that I opted not to take my snowshoes off (note: they were mad at me).|
Since conditions were so lovely, I decided to go for a double Moosilauke traverse and headed down the Carriage Road. The snow cover is decent down to the Glencliff intersection (just a few bare spots by the summit). Glencliff was dreamy to descend, and is now in fine shape as well thanks to the many snowshoers who packed down the postholes :).
First hike as an official NH resident and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. It's such a treat to be home!
