Comments
Comments: The trail up to Mt. Field via Avalon is packed out. The A-Z up to Mt. Tom Spur is now nicely packed out and the Mt. Tom Spur is packed out. Nothing else is. Two folks got about a 1/3 to Willey and completely lost the trail. I headed that way and in first two hundred yards I repeatedly post holed in my snowshoes in their tracks. I knew I would not be able to do Willey. About 4 feet of loose snow and drifts. I than headed over to Mt. Tom. So, that section has had 3 people go down it. It is not even close to being a packed track. Again I was post holing in their tracks. Very loose deep snow. Who knows what the rain will do. Did meet two folks working on GRID and Steve who I have not seen in probably 30 years, Small world. The day itself was great
