Comments
Comments: I opted for Microspikes in the sub-freezing temperatures this morning and did not posthole. Prior to the transmission line crossing, there is perhaps 6 to 12 inches of snowpack. Would probably snowshoe if above freezing. The snowpack decreases as one ascends. The final tenth or so of a mile to the building is virtually snow free.
