Comments
Comments: Well it was Joe's finish of 4 lists: NH48, Winter NH48, NE67, NEHH!! There were 9 of us total with also Moe the pup! We all wore snowshoes the entire time and the snow never stuck to them. If you walked off the trail you would easily find out the monorail is the only thing that will keep you afloat. We got stuck in a few snow squalls and the skies opened up partly for us. The trail does go off a few times from people trying to find their own way but we all made it to the same place. There was a fair amount of people on the trail, some in snowshoes, some in spikes, and a few in bareboots with no traction. We post holed at times with snowshoes and on our way our a lot more post holes from others without snowshoes were happening everywhere.... ah the spring will be interested as every year is.
