Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: There are a couple of decent blowdowns. Easy enough to step over/around. One duck under on between the two peaks that could be problematic at some point if the snowpack shows up. Trail is well blazed.  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Jackson stayed home because it was supposed to be cold and windy up top, it was a little chilly but the wind never showed up. Don't tell him he could have come on an adventure. 
Bugs: None.  
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Tom lost his sandwich. I found it. He told me it wasn't his. It was.  
Comments: Perfect day for Waumbek, post storm with snow covered trees. Mary wanted to practice breaking trail so she and Tutu got a head start on us by about an hour. Between the 4 of us, we laid down a nice snowshoe track and we passed one additional person on our way down. The fresh snow is loose powder so snowshoes are definitely the best traction choice at this time.
