Comments
Comments: Lonesome Lake Trail well consolidated to the hut. Past the hut, followed a single set of tracks through the snow up Fishin Jimmy and along the ridge to South Kinsman. Coming back, enough people had made it as far as North Kinsman that the path was consolidated - looked like a large group came up Mt. Kinsman Trail. Going down, Fishin Jimmy was starting to get packed down, but still needed a few more people before I’d consider attempting it without snowshoes.

Overall, a gorgeous day to be in the mountains - fresh snow, no wind, and stunning undercast in all the valleys!
