Comments
Comments: We didn't encounter as much snow as we expected based on previous storms. There was nice snow show track buried under 6-8 inch new high water content snow. Happy to find No evidence of post-holing on this trail. No views due to clouds and light snow. We stopped at Bald Peak and got some nice views of snow draped mountainside with cloud ceiling obscuring summits and valley below.
