|Lost and Found:
||Alas how I forget that the ‘Bigs (Bigelows) make their own weather. Weather forecasts don’t apply here. But this was the last hike in Maine for my good buddy who is moving west so out we went... |
This is a well blue blazed trail, at least to Moose Falls Campsite where we turned around. Snow depths began at trace amounts up to 1000 feet then began increasing to a depth of 6 inches right at 3000 feet. This snow was loose powder, very pleasant for walking in the woods. As my buddy put it, “snowshoes would be overkill.” But spikes may be helpful higher up...
Such a sad day, though a nice walk in the Maine woods. Best of luck my friend and happy trails wherever your adventure takes you.
