Comments
Comments: As one ascends the thin frozen compressed slush becomes more prevalent. There are ice flows in some spots where the run-off froze. Nevertheless, there are stretches of bare ground especially at lower elevations. I would recommend carrying microspikes or some other traction.
Enjoyed conversations with the Whitefield NH trio, the Framingham/Nashua trio, and Craig from Scarborough. The gray jays put in an appearance. Great views from Signal Ridge and the summit observation tower. Unfortunately, the Presidential Range was socked in. Fairly windy in the open spots especially on the observation platform. Took off spikes before using the stairs up the tower.
