Comments
Comments: We managed all day with microspikes but there are some steep and icy spots on Sandwich Mountain Trail where crampons would have been good. Also, the snow gets a little deeper from Jennings Spur over to Sandwich Mountain and snowshoes would have been a good option but not necessary. Pretty day up on the trail, even though clouds were predicted. Good views at the peak. Nice day, lovely woods. Kestrel data: 27 F, W 0, WC 27.
