Comments
Comments: Brisk temps, but negligible wind. Patches of blue with overhead clouds and filtered sun. Clouds hung over Presies to just above Ike, but views to west provided hazy sighting along Bond ridge, Twins.
Packed snowshoe tracks on all trails--about 1/2 & 1/2 snowshoers (mostly us).(best traction) and spikers who added to loose snow especially higher up, and sank deep if stepping off trail.
Hungry grey jays on Field, eager to eat nuts off hands. Where were they on tom??

Maximally beautiful woods with trees covered with snow creating etherial surroundings. A fine time had by all
