||There was next to no snow or ice south of Bald Mountain and Maple Hill; then increasing snow/ice closer to Glastenbury, with trace snow depths and significant blue and black ice near the shelter and up to the peak. |
Both bushwhacks were mainly open, with some tangely low growth. I replaced the jar on the west peak as it was destroyed. South could use a jar, but is okay for now.
bryan's note about the LT map mis-labeling the west peak and the trail around it is important. It is the more northeast bump and the trail cuts just north of it.
This was a good, fairly long hike. Great views from the remote firetower.
