Comments
Comments: According to Gaia this trip was 6.47 miles RT from where I parked. The road to the summer trailhead had been snowmachined prior to the last storm which left 2-3” powder on a firm base. The yellow blazed boundary cut off the skidder path was easily identified. Although I had inadvertently deleted my 3 season track, by heading generally uphill at the end of the blazes, I was fortunate to arrive directly at the summit canister. (I did have to bull my way through a 20’ section of snow laden young Balsams that were clearly off the herd path route).
Even on the snow machined section, snowshoes were helpful. From the summer parking area, snow depths increased to 18”.
