Comments
Comments: Originally wanted to go to Mt. Putnam as well, but the trail past the Pinnacle spur junction was lightly tracked, and I left my snowshoes in the car, so I skipped it- didn't want to posthole all that way. The trail between the trailhead and the summit was like a sidewalk. Light traction did just the trick. Anything else would've been overkill. Great 360 views from the open summit.
