Comments: Super leaf cover, freezing rain and snow made for a slick outing. More slippery on the return trip back up Goat Pasture Hill after a few decent showers. Water crossings weren't bad but some balancing aides were useful (i.e poles) since it was a chilly, wet day to begin with. Two large blowdowns and a step over on Goat Pasture Hill, along with one by the summit of Shannon (proper parties notified). The Blue trail connecting the Red Trail to the Shannon trail has seen better days since the October storm. A lot of wet, muddy, twigginess in that brief quarter mile stretch.

Winter like views from the summit of Shannon and Goat Pasture Hill! Two truly underrated Belknap peaks.
