Comments
Comments: Did this one with Monica and the Random Group of Hikers. The skies started to fill with clouds as we made our way up to Equinox. The lower trails were full of locals but there were fewer people on the upper trail to the summit. At the summit we were able to see the Whites, Greens, and Adirondacks. I was the only one who used snowshoes - hard to pass up on heel lifts on steeps.
