Comments
Comments: Top 5 day on the trails today! 70 degrees, bluebird day and no wind at the summit - spent a good 30 minutes at the summit to soak it all in! We bare booted the entire ascent up Gorge Brook, probably could've used spikes above 3500' to the alpine zone, but did OK w/out. The challenge was coming down Carriage Rd until the junction with Snapper - it was like navigating slushy moguls with occasional post holing. Spikes helped with the traction, not so much with the post holing. It was a bit tedious and slow going but the trails were snow free once we got on Snapper. Everyone out today (saw maybe 10 people total) was friendly and happy that we had such an amazing day to be out on all of our favorite mountain.
