Comments
Comments: Did this one with Monica and the Random Group of Hikers. The trip to Stratton was made under warm and sunny blue skies. We were the only ones on the trail. The snow was crunchy, and while it could have been done without snowshoes, constantly breaking through the crust became annoying so I wore them most of the day. There were incredible 360° views from the fire tower.
