Comments
Comments: Two guys from North Shore area, MA had tracked from Rt 11 / 30 and built a fire in the cabin's stove. That let me warm my feet and Sorel liner. Thanks, gents!

Besides their fresh tracks in the inch of powder were a few older snowshoe tracks. Almost all tracks frozen hard enough not to need snowshoes. Light tracking helpful in spots.
