Comments
Comments: Lovely day. Comfortable chill in the am, brisk when on tower, warm sun at west view in sunshine. Only small patches of snow approaching summit, no traction required, but wet areas argue for boots, not sneakers. Moderate crowds at Tower, and several people going up as we went down--social distancing observed, and many wearing masks while hiking.
Views from Tower infinite to Whites, Greens, and Monadnock. View from west viewpoint spectacular.
Great fun by all friends.
