Comments
Comments: Old Mountain Erode was a hodgepodge of spring conditions this morning. With the cold temperatures overnight, the snow/slush/ice had set up, allowing for Microspiking. There are some extended areas of ice, mud, and running water. When temperatures warm up in a few hours, snowshoes may be the better option, as the unconsolidated snowpack on the sides of the trail is around a foot deep, whereas the mud and slush on the trail could be almost as deep.

Crawford Ridgepole Trail to the summit is probably about 2/3rds snow free at this point, with the remaining portions being thin and/or small patches. Not surprising, considering the inversion that zapped the ridge's snowpack before the late winter storms.

Squam Lake is still frozen.
