Comments
Comments: Well I was not expecting to road walk as I heard that the road is usually plowed. Well that is not the case. I barebooted to the trailhead but once the few day old tire tracks were done it was maybe 4-6" of powder with sheer ice underneath. At the gate I put on my snowshoes (might as well get use to it as the first day of winter). This helped drastically. There were a few places that it made for some odd walking but happier with them on for sure. Shocking I know, I saw no one, and made the track for the winter if it gets set in or not. I have never went this way but without blazes anywhere, it was quite corridory and no issues making it to mud brook trail. I took that trail up and that was odd with snowshoes but still 4-6" in places. With the road walk it added up to 7 mile via gaia and with the wind on top, took about 4 hours for the whole trip. Such a nice peak if only I could have sat up there longer.
