Comments
Comments: Ammo Rav Trail to Monroe summit trail to Tuck Cross to Davis Path to Crawford to summit then down to Gulfside Tr to Jewell Tr

This turned out to be a beautiful day for Monroe and Washington. There was less wind than forecast. ~25 people were on the Ammo Ravine trail going up. We basked in the warm sunshine on the benches at Lakes of the Cloud hut. The trail to Monroe was a bit obscure due to blown snow. Washington summit was not so windy at about 1PM when we arrived. Many sections of the Guilfside and upper Jewell trail were treacherous due to fluffy snow obscuring irregular rocks covered with ice, and little traffic since the snowfall to pack it down. Still overall a very nice hike on a November wintry day.
