Comments
Comments: We were the fist vehicle in the lot at 8am. The trail is packed solid! Just after Starr King there was a very slight dusting of snow over the packed snow, and then just before Waumbek summit there was the usual drifting, but nothing major. Hillsound trail crampons start to finish. On our descent we passed a solo hiker and then another group of about 5 or 6. Cold but beautiful day, and gorgeous views!!!
