The whole area got a fresh coating of thin snow, with south facing and exposed areas getting less of it; much of it had melted by early afternoon. Parts of the Appalachian Trail heading toward both Mount Undine and Mount Everett still had areas of significant ice- light traction would not be overkill in these spots. The bushwhack up Undine looked easy on paper, but most of it involved going through extremely thick and dense mountain laurel; the bushwhack probably took as long as the trailed part of the hike. The rest of the hike, thankfully, was much more straightforward, and the summit of Everett was very calm and peaceful.
