Comments
Comments: Snowshoes all day. Perfect conditions for snowshoes, especially once the snow started softening up. Views were unbelievable.... presidentials to Katahdin. I love the hike going over Bald and going down the backside to Saddleback Wind. A few tricky spots but otherwise clear sailing to Saddleback Wind. Breezy & cold but out of the wind and in the sun it was rather warm. You like snowshoeing this is a good time to go. I did unfortunately see no one wearing them today, just micro spikes. All good.
