Comments
Comments: Spikes on in the first quarter mile. Nicely packed trail up Gorge Brook to Summit.
A big change in conditions on the way to south peak- 8 or so inches of snow (drifting higher in places) which had been more or less broken out- but was an exciting mess none the less! It was fine without snowshoes- but they would not have been out of place. (if it was December and were were trying to make a nice, long lasting packed trail they would have been required- but this fresh mess won't last!) Down Carriage was mixed conditions of fluffy drifts, slimy slop and spring snow. Snapper more of the same, but much less snow. All in all a fine February day (typical Spring, 99% of hikers looked ready for the mixed bag, and a few looked like they were ready for 60 degrees in Boston)
