Comments
Comments: Beautiful fresh snow day .This loop is one of my favorites and so close to home. Snowshoes all the way. Two of us broke out the trails , at times there was some deep drifts, other times only sunk in 3 inches, steeps were difficult as I hit rock on Sandwich dome trail, styrofoam in some areas , sticky at lower elevation on Drakes. ALL in all Beautiful snow laden trees and fun snowshoeing !!!More snow arriving tomorrow night.
